UMass Lowell freshman Ryan McGrath beat three Tigers to the puck at center ice and pulled away from the two CC defensemen to generate a breakaway that he cashed in against goalie Josh Thorimbert for a 1-0 lead for the visiting River Hawks.
UML dominated play for much of the first period and showed plenty of speed to handle the Olympic-sized sheet. Despite that, CC came close to scoring, but UML goalie Doug Carr made a huge glove save on a rebound attempt by Rylan Schwartz with 8:23 left to preserve the 1-0 lead.
