WORCESTER -- UMass Lowell's dream of making a second straight appearance in NCAA hockey's Frozen Four came to an end last night, as Boston College defeated the River Hawks, 4-3, in the Northeast Regional here Sunday night.

In a back-and-forth game, UMass Lowell came back from 1-0 and 2-1 deficits before taking a 3-2 lead early in the third period. But BC came back to score the next two goals and withstand a furious UMass Lowell offensive flurry in the closing seconds.

BC has now been to more Frozen Fours than any other college hockey team.

UMass Lowell's season ends with a Hockey East title and a dramatic loss in the Regional final.
