UAlbany Sports Information   05-24-2018

Score: #2 UMass Lowell 4, #6 UAlbany 0

Location: Mahaney Diamond in Orono, Maine

Records: UAlbany (20-27, 9-14 AE); UMass Lowell (25-27, 13-11 AE)

Short Story: UAlbany fell 4-0 to UMass Lowell in their second game of the America East Tournament, and will play Maine later tonight in an elimination game.

Coach Mueller: “There’s only one team in the country that ends with a win.  There will be two teams playing for a championship Friday or Saturday and that’s what the goal is.  We didn’t capitalize on some opportunities early, we gave away some stuff early, and we really weren’t able to get anything going offensively.  But we have to turn around quick in what is now an elimination game.”
