PSC earns 2nd tie with UMass Dartmouth

January 7th, 2003 by Adam

NORTH DARTMOUTH, Mass. – Junior Kyle Poirier (Concord, N.H.) scored a goal and an assist Tuesday evening as Plymouth State College’s ice hockey team
opened the 2003 calendar year with a 3-3 non-conference tie at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

Poirier notched a power play goal early in the second period to even the game at 2-2, then helped set up the game-tying goal with 4:39 remaining in regulation. The
two teams played a five-minute overtime but finished with their second deadlock of the season; they tied 2-2 in a conference game in November.

PSC (1-3-3 overall) took a 1-0 lead just 3:13 into the game on the third goal of the season by freshman Nick DeBaggis (Topsfield, Mass.), with sophomore Michal
Bodnar (Czech Rep./Laconia, NH) and junior goalie Mike Mansson (Wilson, Wyo.) picking up assists. UMD (8-2-3 overall) came back with two first period scores, by Matt
Beck and Dave Cioch, to take a one-goal lead after 20 minutes.

Poirier tallied the only goal of the second period with his third PPG of the season at 3:44, with Bodnar and freshman Paul Feeney (Lowell, Mass.) assisting. Bodnar
leads the Panthers in scoring with eight points (one goal and seven assists).

The Corsairs regained the lead at 14:56 of the third period on a goal by Scott Trahan, but PSC sophomore Mitchell LaFleur (Levittown, Pa.) responded just 25
seconds later with the tying goal, as Poirier and junior Mike Jackson (Middleton, Mass.) earned the assists.

Mansson started in the Panther net and stopped 37 of the 39 shots he faced before suffering a serious hand injury midway through the third period. Freshman Joe
McCabe (Saugus, Mass.) came on and made five saves in the final 13 minutes and 34 seconds. UMD’s Ryan Grant finished with 21 saves as the hosts outshot the
Panthers, 45-24.

Plymouth State returns home to host a pair of non-conference games this weekend at Waterville Valley Ice Arena – Friday against Brockport State and Saturday vs.
Franklin Pierce. Both games are set for 6:00 p.m.
