Miami is upset in 1st round of NCAA Hockey Tournament

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Kevin Goumas scored twice and New Hampshire goalie Matt Di Girolamo stopped eight shots in the third period as the Wildcats upset top-seeded Miami of Ohio 3-1 Saturday in the NCAA tournament's northeast regional.

Mike Sislo also scored for the Wildcats (22-10-6), breaking a 1-all tie early in the third period and Di Girolamo carried UNH the rest of the way.

Di Girolamo didn't allow a goal after Bryon Paulazzo put Miami (23-10-6) up 1-0 just 53 seconds into the game. He finished with 21 saves and was mobbed by his teammates at the net after the final horn as New Hampshire fans chanted "U-N-H!"

Goumas tied it at 1-all exactly one minute after Miami's only score and later and added an empty-net goal with 1:25 left in the third.
