AMHERST, Mass. - Sophomore forward Colin White had two goals and an assist while sophomore forward Austin Cangelosi added two goals to help Boston College skate to a 7-4 win against Massachusetts.


RESULT: No. 8 Boston College 7, UMass 4
LOCATION: Mullins Center (Amherst, Mass.)
RECORDS: Massachusetts (2-4-0, 0-2-0 HEA); Boston College (6-2-1, 2-0-1 HEA)

THE LEAD: University of Massachusetts hockey scored four third period goals, but No. 8 Boston College's 5-0 start was enough to hold off UMass in what ended as a 7-4 loss for the Minutemen on Saturday night at the Mullins Center. Four of the Eagles' tallies came from special teams with two short-handers and two power-play goals on the night.


BC opened the scoring 8:48 into the first when JD Dudek beat sophomore Nic Renyard on a shorthanded breakaway. Jesper Mattila made it 2-0 with his shot from the point that found its way through traffic at 10:25 and Austin Cangelosi added the Eagles' third of the period with his one-timer on the power play 14:58 into the frame.


Boston College added two more goals in the second. Ryan Fitzgerald cleaned up a loose puck in front of the UMass net shortly after a power play opportunity expired at 4:16. Colin White then picked up the Eagles' second of the contest with the man advantage 10:54 into the stanza.


Sophomore Austin Plevy picked a corner for his first goal of the season 2:15 into the third, a power-play goal from freshmen Shane Bear and Jake McLaughlin that put UMass on the board. Junior Patrick Lee added another for the Minutemen, redirecting sophomore William Lagesson's shot from the point at the 8:11 mark to close the gap to 5-2. BC answered with a pair of goals of its own, though. White and Cangelosi both logged their second tallies of the night 11:04 and 13:27 into the third, respectively. UMass then completed the scoring with a goal from Ryan Badger at 14:09 during a five-minute power play and sophomore Kurt Keats' first of the year at the 17:25 mark.


Continuing the squad's balanced scoring this season, 11 Minutemen combined for 12 points in the contest. Lee registered a goal and an assist for his second multi-point game of the season and 11th of his career. Five assists came from five of UMass' six defensemen and the four goal scorers were from each of the Minutemen's four forward lines.

Boston College out-shot the Minutemen, 36-18. UMass went 2-for-9 on the power play against BC, while the Eagles were 2-for-5 with the man advantage.

Renyard (0-3-0) made his second start of the season in net for the Minutemen and logged 29 saves, while his counterpart, Ryan Edquist (2-0-0), turned aside 14 shots for Boston College.

UP NEXT: UMass will wrap up its homestand next Friday, Nov. 4, when the squad will play host to Hockey East foe Connecticut at 7 p.m. in the Mullins Center.
