GRAND FORKS, N.D. - The University of Alabama in Huntsville hockey team lost the non-conference series finale at No. 2 North Dakota by a score of 4-1 on Saturday night in Ralph Engelstad Arena. UAH dips to 4-14-2, while UND is now 18-2-2.
North Dakota jumped on the board on Saturday as Paul Ladue scored an unassisted tally just 25 seconds into the non-conference matchup, but UAH was able to bounce back later in the opening period at 19:47 as sophomore Richard Buri snuck a shot past UND netminder Cam Johnson for his second marker of the season.
Junior Carmine Guerriero - who stopped 38 of 39 shots on Friday night - anchored the Chargers defense yet again, totaling a weekend-high 18 saves in the first stanza to help UAH tie the contest 1-1 after 20 minutes.
After a scoreless eight minutes to begin the second period, North Dakota's Drake Caggiula notched a shorthanded goal at 8:16 to give the Fighting Hawks a pivotal 2-1 lead. The Chargers had all three of their power-play chances in the middle period but did not convert as UND took the one-goal advantage into second intermission.
The Fighting Hawks maintained their 2-1 lead throughout the majority of the third period, before posting an additional pair of tallies at the end of the frame by Bryn Chyzyk at 18:08 with an empty net and at 19:11 by Tucker Poolman to bring the game to its 4-1 final.
Guerriero's record dipped to 2-10-2 on the year with the loss, despite accruing 34 saves during the contest. The Montreal, Quebec, native now has six games with 30 or more saves in 2015-16.
The Chargers managed a total of 15 shots on goal against North Dakota, with Jack Prince pacing the Blue and White with three shots on target.
UAH returns home and to WCHA play next week as Alaska Fairbanks visits the Rocket City for a two-game series on Jan. 8-9. The Chargers/Nanooks Jan. 8 matchup will be televised nationally by the American Sports Network.
