Dartmouth was just 32.3 seconds away from winning its Division 2 first-round game in regulation, but overtime provided an even more thrilling moment thanks to JC Frates.

The senior converted a feed from senior Damien Medeiros and scored with 3:38 left in overtime, lifting the #12 Indians to a 4-3 win over #21 Westwood at Hetland Arena.

Dartmouth erased a 2-1 deficit entering the third period, getting goals from Nick Howarth and Cullen Larrabee. The Indians then killed off a penalty in the final minutes of regulation, but Westwood pulled its goalie in the final minute and, after a pair of icings on failed Indians attempts at the empty net, the Wolverines finally cashed in on Matt Foley’s second goal of the game.

Foley also gave the Wolverines a 1-0 lead after one, his shorthanded goal coming off a turnover.

Medeiros got a shorthanded goal of his own to tie it for Dartmouth, but on the same power play, Danny Sullivan responded to give Westwood its one-goal lead back entering the third period.

Ashton Machado made 22 saves for Dartmouth, and Declan O’Leary stopped 23 for Westwood.

Duxbury 6, Auburn 0

It took nearly two periods for the #5 Dragons to get going, but once they did they never stopped. Brady Glass scored the game-winner with 5:49 left in the second period, and Duxbury eventually pulled away from the #28 Rockets at The Bog.

Still holding a 1-0 lead entering the third, Duxbury finally got rolling as Braeden Hulett scored twice while Tyler Walse, Cormac Weiler and Will Atallah added single goals.
