College hockey: Dutchmen see another lead disappear

— Another night, another blown two-goal lead for Union.

The 12th-ranked Dutchmen saw a 2-0 lead disappear in the third period Saturday against No. 15 Yale, and the teams settled for a 2-2 ECAC Hockey tie at Ingalls Rink.

It was the second time in two nights that Union (3-2-3 ECACH, 8-3-4 overall) wasted a two-goal cushion. The Dutchmen had a 3-1 lead after the first period against Brown on Friday, but the Bears came back for a 3-3 tie.

A weekend that could have earned four points for Union instead produced two. It was the Dutchmen’s third straight tie. They had a 4-4 tie last Saturday against Princeton.

“I don’t think I’m going to be running around Clifton Park tomorrow chanting that we played great,” Union coach Rick Bennett said. “We have to keep working on the process.”

This time, Union had a 1-0 lead after the first period, thanks to a Wayne Simpson power-play goal. After a scoreless second period, Greg Coburn gave the Dutchmen a 2-0 lead with an early third-period power-play goal.

The Bulldogs (3-3-1, 6-3-2) started their rally on Charles Orzetti’s goal at 13:38. Gus Young tied it with 4:38 remaining when he put the rebound of an Andrew Miller shot past goalie Troy Grosenick.

“I think we were pressing, and they came down and they just put it in the net,” Coburn said.

The Dutchmen killed off eight Yale power-play opportunities. They have allowed just one power-play goal in their last 27 short-handed situations.

Union is off until after Christmas. The Dutchmen will play in the Catamount Cup at Vermont Dec. 29-30. They face the host Catamounts and former Union coach Kevin Sneddon on the 29th, and then take on Merrimack on the 30th in the second meeting between the two schools. The Warriors ruined the Dutchmen’s season opener with a 4-1 win. Oct. 6
