Nice win against Hofstra- they must really hate UMASS. Watched the highlights from the game- Arrant has a wicked shot when he is free. It will be fun to watch him for four years!!!

Just can't believe UMASS lost to Albany with their big gun out. Now it turns out he was kicked off the team-hard to believe you kick an All American off your team unless he was a complete jerk!!

Not sure what's up with UMASS these days. Thought they would blow through most of the schedule. Two losses with their experience is concerning. Go Gorillas.

No Connolly again and Trainor getting whacked today didn't help. That removes a lot of offensive leadership.

Our guys are not the gazelles that they think they are when trying to clear. They lost possession so many times. We had 21 turnovers, our high for the year.

Is Connolly out for the year?

The frustrating part was all the shot clock violations! Where is all of this so-called 5th yr senior leadership we hear about?

Just a reminder that we play Hofstra again today @5 @ Garber on the Lax Sports Net.

Did I read that relatives of players can attend? Maybe there will be some noise at Garber. I'm sure that the Hofstra parents group was on the ferry early this morning.

UM is having a lot of trouble at faceoff X, but is also causing many Hofstra turnovers. Currently 6-4 UM at 8 minutes into 2nd quarter.

8 - 6 UMass at half - we start Man down with 1 minute locked in foul.

Tough loss at 11-12 with Hofstra being dominant in faceoff wins and winning contested ground balls. That coupled with several man-down episodes for UMass on the over-aggressive play. We had 2 men-up with 7 seconds but could not connect for the tying goal.

Tough loss. Great goaltending for UMass in the loss.

Disappointing loss. Up 8-4 and thought they would score 20 goals. Scored only 3 goals in the last 35 minutes. They need to do better than that. Looks like a lackluster year for the Gorillas. Had high hopes for them. Maybe Carvel needs to give them a pep talk.

Team seems to be discombobulated since Connelly went down.

Towson @ 1 @ Garber today on UMass Sports Network.

EDIT: Per twitter - also at lsn.com

Down 9-4 at the half even though we won 13 of 15 faceoffs. 11 turnovers, many on short passes way off the mark. Painful to watch.

UMass digs a huge hole versus Towson at 2 to 5 by the end of the first qtr, at 4-9 by half. UMass holds Towson to no second-half goals, but UM ends up losing 6 to 9. Too bad as this was senior day.

Third consecutive loss. Bright spots were hat trick by Arrant, and dominant play at Fogo by Hochman - 17 of 19 won.

We are now on the outside looking in for CAA playoffs - an amazing dropoff from national pre-season expectations.

Collegian reportage on the impact of the younger players today - which I agree with. Seniors had a bad day overall at crunch time for the season.
