WORCESTER, Mass. — It was a promising start.

But the University of Maine’s first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2006-2007 was short-lived as as the defending national champion University of Minnesota-Duluth erased a 2-0 deficit with five unanswered goals to beat the Black Bears 5-2 at the DCU Center Saturday night.

Minnesota-Duluth improved to 25-9-6 and will take on Boston College in Sunday night’s Northeast Regional final at 8 p.m. The winner advances to the Frozen Four in Tampa.

Maine wound up 23-14-3.

Kenny Reiter finished with 25 saves for the winners while Dan Sullivan wound up with 21 for Maine.
