Northeastern vs. UMass score update: Roy, Carzo score second goals of game; Minutemen lead 3-2

Northeastern's Kevin Roy and UMass' Rocco Carzo each scored their second goals of the game in the second period, but the visiting Minutemen have a 3-2 lead after 40 minutes of play at Matthews Arena in Boston. Despite trailing on the scoreboard, the Huskies held a 16-11 shots advantage in the stanza to pull within 30-26 for the game.

The Huskies were first to turn the trick as Roy buried the puck again at 11:35, taking the cross-ice pass from classmate Michael McMurtry for the easy goal. UMass' Kevin Boyle was committed to the initial shot, making way for the Quebec native to tap it into a virtually-open cage.

With that second goal, Roy completes his fifth multi-point game of his rookie campaign on Huntington Avenue.

Before one could blink an eye, co-captain Rocco Carzo of the Minutemen countered with his seventh of the season, forcing a turnover and beating NU senior Chris Rawlings on a weak five-hole score at the 13:58 mark. Redshirt sophomore Steven Guzzo assisted on the goal, connecting with Carzo, an Ontario native, for the second time in the game.
