LSSU Responds to Critics

After enduring a week of skepticism from the Laker faithful LSSU came out with an offensive explosion Friday night against Bowling Green State University. Junior goaltender Jeff Jakaitis was his regular stellar self recording 27 saves, on 28 shots. The Lakers improved to 9-1-2 for the season, when scoring the first goal of the game.

The Lakers came out flying, in front of a crowd of 2285, including a strong contingent in the student section. Junior forward Dominic Osman scored his 8th goal of the season, on a rebound, at just 3:45 into the game with assists going to Jon Booras, and Derek A. Smith. LSSU was able to add another goal at 5:35 of the opening period, 11 seconds into their first power play of the contest, with Colin Nicholson scoring his 6th goal of the season, with assists going to Dominic Osman and Derek A. Smith.

Senior forward Nathan Ward banged in the goal on the doorstep, scoring at 4:58 of the second period with assists going to Dominic Osman and Matt Wheeler. After killing off two penalties freshman Troy Schwab scored his sixth of the season with assists going to Josh Sim and Mike Adamek.

Troy Schwab was able to add his second goal of the game at 9:15 of the third period after getting a great pass from Nathan Ward (and Steve McJannet) and taking it into the Bowling Green zone to beat Jon Horrell.

Bowling Green’s Brandon Svendsen was able to breakup Jakaitis attempt for his 5th shutout of the season by scoring a goal at 14:13 of the third period.

Derek R. Smith was able to slip a back hand shot past BGSU goaltender Horrell on the odd man rush, with the assist going to Colin Nicholson, to give the Lakers a 6-1 lead.

LSSU was able to maintain a slight, 56% (39 to 31), faceoffs advantage over the Falcons.

The only low point for the Lakers in the game, was the horrendous officiating by CCHA referee Brett Klosowski, who called 7 penalties on LSSU giving Bowling Green 10:54 with the extra man. While the Lakers where only awarded 33 seconds of power play time on two penalties. LSSU was able to capitalize on their first power play opportunity making them 1 for 2 with the extra attacker.

Lake Superior out shot BGSU 30-28, with 9 of the Falcons shots coming on the power play thanks to Klosowski. Despite the poor officiating the Lakers where able win their first game in which they where called for more penalties than their opponent, LSSU is now 1-4-3 in these games.
