UNION COLLEGE – Union got away with taking too many penalties against Clarkson on Friday.

The Dutchmen weren’t as fortunate on Saturday against St. Lawrence.

Max  Dorrington’s second-period power-play goal triggered a four-goal outburst that led the Saints to a 4-2 ECAC Hockey victory over the Dutchmen at Appleton Arena in Canton.

Tyler Cristall, Ashton Fry and Will Arquiett scored after that as the Saints (2-0-0 ECACH, 6 points; 5-4-0 overall) took a 4-1 lead.

Even though Union (2-2-0, 6 points; 4-7-1 overall) killed six of seven St. Lawrence power plays, having to play shorthanded so much hurt their overall play.

Union gave up seven power-play chances to Clarkson on Friday. The Golden Knights scored twice, but the Dutchmen won 3-2.

“When you go back to back nights [and take] too many penalties and you have to play guys that [penalty] kill, those are hard minutes and it just wears you down,” Union head coach Josh Hauge said in a Zoom call. “You don’t have the ability to play at the pace you want to. [It’s] so frustrating. It will be addressed on Monday.”

Carter Korpi’s first-period power-play goal gave Union a 1-0 lead. Cullen Ferguson scored in the final seconds of the game, his first collegiate goal.

Women

UNION 5, DARTMOUTH 4 (OT)

Riley Walsh scored on a breakaway 53 seconds into sudden-death overtime to cap a comeback from a pair of three-goal deficits and give the Dutchwomen a victory over the Big Green at Messa Rink.

Union (1-2-1, 3.5 points; 4-5-1) trailed 3-0 and 4-1 in the third period before mounting its comeback. Emily King scored a pair of power-play goals to pull the Dutchwomen within one. Maren Friday tied it on an even-strength goal with 6:33 left in regulation.

The Dutchwomen caught the Big Green (1-4-0, 4 points; 1-4-0) in a bad line change. Emma Hebert sent the pick from Union’s left-wing corner to Riley, who went in alone on Dartmouth goalie Maggie Emerson. Walsh, who assisted on both of King’s power-play goals, deked Emerson and slipped a forehand shot into the net to end the game.
