ORONO - Brendan Robbins' hat trick was a spark for Maine men's hockey against Merrimack Friday night, but it was Patrick Holway's game-winner in overtime that gave the Black Bears a much-needed 4-3 win over the Warriors at Alfond Arena.


Meanwhile, the women played host to rival New Hampshire, and took a 2-1 lead into the third period. But two penalties put the Wildcats on a 5-on-3 advantage, where they tied the game up at 2, ultimately serving as the final.
