Albany Times Union - - COLLEGES - Staff re­port

Union squan­dered a two-goal first-pe­riod lead and ended up with a 3-3 tie with host Brown on Fri­day in a men’s col­lege ice hockey clash in Prov­i­dence, R.I.

Liam Mor­gan put the Dutch­men on the score­board with his fifth goal of the sea­son 6 min­utes, 59 sec­onds into the first pe­riod. Ryan Walker sent home his fifth goal of the year at 16:26 to give the Dutch­men a two-goal ad­van­tage head­ing into the first in­ter­mis­sion.

Brown an­swered with the first two goals of the sec­ond pe­riod to even the con­test. Justin Jallen scored his fourth goal and Alec Mehr had his first tally for the Bears to knot the game at 2 mid­way through the sec­ond pe­riod.

Parker Foo scored for Union to give the Dutch­men a 3-2 lead, but it was short-lived as Alex Brink lev­eled the con­test for Brown just be­fore the close of the pe­riod at 19:10.

Brown (1-6-3 over­all, 1-4-3 in ECAC) held a 24-20 shots ad­van­tage over Union head­ing into the third pe­riod, but the of­fenses slowed down with no goals over the third and over­time pe­ri­ods and just 18 shots were taken by both teams in that time.

Union held an 11-7 ad­van­tage in shots over the third pe­riod and over­time to even the shots at 31 for the game.

Keeper Dar­ion Hanson moved to 4-1-2 for Union while goalie Luke Ka­nia is now 0-2-2 for Brown.

The Dutch­men (8-3-3, 3-3-1) travel to take on Yale at 7 p.m. Satur­day.
