The University of New Hampshire men’s ice hockey team outshot Army West Point, 40-21, and had a pair of goals from freshman Eric MacAdams, but it wasn’t enough as the No. 13/15 Wildcats fell to the Black Knights, 4-3, in Durham.

Army West Point (8-8-2) took a 2-0 lead in the first period, before MacAdams netted his second career goal to cut the deficit in half heading into the second period.

The Black Knights extended the lead to 3-1 with a goal 2:55 into the second before MacAdams netted his third career goal 3:43 into the third to cut the deficit again.

But the Black Knights beat UNH netminder Danny Tirone (17 saves) to take a 4-2 lead and Anthony Wyse’s goal with less than four minutes remaining in the third was all the scoring the Wildcats could manage, despite several power-play opportunities.

UNH (9-6-1) went 0-for-3 with the man-advantage, including a five-minute power play in the second period and had a man-advantage for the last 3:19 of the game.
