POSTDAM, N.Y. – Bentley University trailed 3-0 entering the third period, but scored three unanswered goals in the final frame to earn a 3-3 draw at Clarkson Saturday night in non-conference hockey action.
Freshman Brett Gensler (St. Charles, Mo./Youngstown Phantoms) scored his first collegiate goal just 45 seconds into the third to get Bentley to within two goals.
Sophomore Brett Hartung (Tallahassee, Fla./Wichita Falls Wildcats) followed up Gensler's goal less than four minutes later to make it a one goal game with freshman Jared Rickord (Skokie, Ill./Springfield Jr. Blues) on the assist.
After that flurry of goals, Bentley waited until the game's latter stages to tie it up, but did so when junior Herbie Kent (Amesbury, Mass./The Governor's Academy) found the back of the net with 3:39 to play.
Overtime did not yield any winners, but both teams had three shots on net.
Junior goalie Kyle Rank (Islip, N.Y./Markham Waxers) made 40 saves for Bentley, with 15 in the first period and 17 in the third.
Bentley's record goes to 0-3-1 on the season, while Clarkson goes to 3-2-1.
The Falcons complete their five-game road trip on Saturday at Northeastern from Matthews Arena.
