PROVIDENCE, R.I. — At least the Union men’s hockey team salvaged the appearance of a blowout loss for the second night in a row.

That will come as no consolation, of course, after the Dutchmen lost at Brown 3-2 Saturday night to complete an empty weekend on the heels of Union’s best game of the season last weekend, a 3-3 tie with Cornell.

With a chance to solidify better footing in the ECAC Hockey standings this weekend, the Dutchmen (4-9-1, 6-17-2) fell back to ninth place with a 5-0 loss at Yale on Friday and the loss to Brown. The Bears improved to 4-8-0 in the conference and 4-15-0 overall.

Brown took a 3-0 lead on Justin Jallen’s ninth goal of the season at 11:13 of the second period.

After mustering just 11 total shots through two periods, Union got two late goals in the third with goalie Darion Hanson on the bench for an extra skater.

Freshman Liam Roberts scored at 18:00 on assists from defensemen Dylan Anhorn and Brandon Estes, and Estes scored with 1:02 left on an assist from Anhorn, but the Dutchmen couldn’t get the equalizer.
