DURHAM, N.H. -- Senior goaltender Christoffer Hernberg stopped 21 shots but the UMass Lowell hockey team suffered a 1-0 loss at the University of New Hampshire in a Hockey East game Friday night.

UNH 1, Lowell 0

The River Hawks drop to 18-11-3 overall and 12-7-3 in HE. The Wildcats are 12-12-8 and 8-9-5.

“Overall, I thought it was an exciting hockey game, despite the low score,” said UMass Lowell head coach Norm Bazin. “I thought both teams traded chances for a while. I wasn’t dissatisfied with our effort, the effort was there, the execution was not.”

Freshman forward Jackson Pierson scored the lone goal of the game, his eighth of the season, with 2:53 left in the second period.

Hernberg turned in strong game in goal while making his 15th start of the season. UNH goalie Mike Robinson made 29 saves while earning his 10th win of the season and fifth career shutout.

The River Hawks outshot UNH, 29-22 in the game, which included an 8-1 advantage in the third period.

The teams meet again Saturday night at the Tsongas Center (7 p.m.).
