BEVERLY, Mass. (January 31, 2020) – The Western New England University men's ice hockey team fell to Endicott, 3-0, in CCC action on Friday evening at Raymond J. Bourque Arena.

Top Performers
Endicott had three different goal scorers. The Gulls received goals from sophomore Azan Dorsett (McKinney, Texas), freshman Noah Strawn (Wareham, Mass.), and graduate student Jason Kalinowski (Stamford, Conn.). Sophomore goaltender Conor O'Brien (Pinellas Park, Fla.) recorded 19 saves for the shutout.

Senior goaltender Kyle Carducci (Rocky Hill, Conn.) made 50 saves for the Golden Bears.

Game Review
The Gulls didn't get on the board until midway through the third period when Dorsett found the back of the net. Senior James Winkler (York, Maine) and freshman Matt Giroux (Bedford, N.H.) provided the assists on the goal.

Endicott extended their lead just under two minutes later through a goal from Strawn. Freshman Connor Amsley (Carlisle, Pa.) and Winkler added the assists.

After the Golden Bears pulled Carducci to try to grab a goal, Kalinowski capitalized, scoring an empty net goal to give the Gulls a 3-0 lead. Freshman Mitch Shaheen (North Andover, Mass.) assisted on the goal.

Notes
• Carducci's 50 saves ties his season high.
