The Minutemen would score twice in the second and once in the third before Tommy Bruso put the Owls on the board. The goal was Bruso’s second goal of the season and was a short-handed tally. In a penalty filled game that saw the Owls in the box for most of the night, UMass would score on the power play with only 1:48 remaining to seal the deal for the Minutemen. The Owls are now 0-2 this season against their Western Mass rivals.
