Lakers record second sweep of the season

After a scoreless first period which saw the Lake Superior State put 14 shots on Robert Morris backup goaltender, and Northern Michigan University transfer, Joe Tuset, the Lakers fell behind less than two minutes into the second period (1:17) with Sean Berkstresser scoring his sixth goal of the season on a power play caused by Derek A. Smith’s checking from behind penalty.

Smith was able to atone for his gaff by tying the game at one goal apiece with a power play goal of his own; his first goal of the season at 14:00 of the second period, assists went to Dan Eves and Jon Booras.

The Lakers took the lead just over two minutes (2:04) into the third period with captain Steve McJannet notching his 4th goal of the season on the power play, with assists going to Dominic Osmon and Barnabas Birkeland. The Lakers were unable to maintain their slim one goal lead though and gave up a short handed tally to Robert Morris forward Tom Biondich at 13:02 of the third period. The Lakers where able to regain the lead at 16:56 of the third period with Jon Booras scoring his first goal of the season with an assist going to Derek R. Smith. RMU was able to crawl back into the game with Jace Buzek scoring an even strength goal with 1:25 remaining in the contest.

Laker junior forward Dominic Osman returned to the lineup after being benched the two previous games to score his team leading fifth goal of the season 3:40 into overtime with assists going to Dan Eves and Jeff Rainville.

"Those were two good wins," Roque said. "Robert Morris really played hard and aggressive. They were both good games -- hard-fought -- and better than winning 8-1. These games will help us."

Troy Schwab, Marty Gurnoe, Matt Wheeler and Mark Adamek sat out due to injuries, but most will be able to come back when LSSU plays host to Alaska Fairbanks next weekend.

Laker freshman goalie Vince Wheeler got his first start of his young career, stopping 23 of the 26 shots he faced.

LSSU went 2 for 5 on the power play, for the second straight night while holding Robert Morris University to 1 for 4 with the extra attacker. The Lakers also dominated the faceoff circle again winning almost twice as many faceoffs as RMU for the weekend.

LSSU plays host Alaska Fairbanks University next weekend.
