Pointers tie Adrian in first of double-header


The UW-Stevens Point Men's Hockey team knows what the Adrian College hockey team is all about, the two having met in the Division III National Championship Game Quarterfinals last March. 

Before Friday's game, Adrian jumped up in the polls one spot to be ranked second, the Pointers dropping down to number four despite having won two straight.

The game was scoreless in the first period, but in the second, UWSP took the lead, a goal by Lawrence Cornellier. That was followed by another goal in the second by Willem Nong-Lambert for a 2-0 lead. 

Bulldog Bryan Yim, however would cut the lead in half before heading to the break.

The match would continue into overtime, and end in a 4-4 score. 

With the tie, the Pointers move to 8-2-2 overall, going 0-1-1 against Adrian this season. But the Pointers will get a chance to get a tally in the win column against the Bulldogs before the end of the first half of the season, finishing the double-header at KB Willett Arena, Saturday night at 7pm.
