six points. Ryan Hantverk and Will Manny each had two goals. UMass

Eight different Minutemen scored the team's eight goals in the second half including three with their first of the season: Mike Wilus, Colin Fleming (first of career) and Mael Walkowiak (first of career), who was playing his first game in the field after being a goalie last season. His goal was assisted by Seth Berggren, the redshirt freshman's first career point.
UMass' other second-half goals came from Ryan Smith, Ryan Liebel, Manny, Kell and K.R. Jurgelevich.
The Minutemen outshot the Friars, 55-17 and outgroundballed them, 37-19.
In nets, Tim McCormack made two saves and Steve Mahle, played the fourth quarter making three stops.
Both face-off men won seven draws each: Anthony Toresco (7-of-11) and Greg Rushing (7-of-12).
