Delaware 9, UNC Charlotte 4

Lowe had a hand in all three second-period goals for the Hens, assisting Justin Grossman 2:47 into the middle frame before connecting for another rapid-fire tandem at 15:30 and 16:09, putting Delaware up 6-0 through forty minutes.Delaware put themselves out of reach for good with another trio of tallies in the first half of the third period. Lowe’s linemates Steve Bryson and Ryan Morse beat Beaulieu, as did second-line winger Jeremy deWit. In all, the Hens peppered Beaulieu with 47 shots on goal.
