— Union had a great three-minute stretch of the first period Friday against Brown, scoring three goals and chasing Bears starting goalie Marco DeFilippo from the game.

The Dutchmen then sat back, and it cost them a win.

The Bears overcame a 3-1 first-period deficit to earn a 3-3 ECAC Hockey tie against the 12th-ranked Dutchmen at Meehan Auditorium.

Union (3-2-2 ECACH, 8-3-3 overall) is winless in its last three games. And, for the third straight game against Brown (0-3-3, 3-5-3), the Dutchmen couldn’t hold on to a first-period lead.

“They took it to us,” Union coach Rick Bennett said. “We got a little complacent.”

The Bears, who swept the season series from the Dutchmen last year, scored first when Chris Zaires beat goalie Troy Grosenick with 8:09 left in the first period.

But the Dutchmen got going after that, scoring three times in a 3:01 stretch. Two of the goals came on power plays. Daniel Carr got the first one at 15:18 to make it 1-1. Josh Jooris gave the Dutchmen the lead with 2:58 on his power-play tally.

With 1:41 left in the first, Jooris tipped a Carr shot past DeFilippo to make it a two-goal Union lead. Anthony Borelli replaced DeFilippo.

The Dutchmen seemed to have the momentum.

“The mood in the [locker] room was great,” Jooris said. “It was a matter of executing on the ice.”

However, it was Brown which executed its game plan. Matt Lorito scored a power-play goal with 12:59 left in the second to make it 3-2.

With Borelli out for an extra attacker, Massimo Lamacchia tipped a Dennis Robertson shot past Grosenick with 1:07 left in the third.
