Lakers Sink back to Earth

Lake Superior State was unable to mount an offensive attack against the University Nebraska-Omaha Friday night, nor was their defense able to contain the Maverick’s high flying offense.

The Lakers fell behind early giving up a power play goal to UNO’s Alex Nikiforuk just 2:59 into the game. The Lakers then gave up goals to Bill Thomas and Scott Parse before heading to the locker room down 3-0 at the end of the first period. LSSU was only able to get 5 shots in the first period.

The Lakers where able to slow down the UNO attack in the second period but they still surrendered two goals. Thomas picked up his second of the game at 5:28, and Micah Sanford scored his first of the season.

Head Coach Jim Roque pulled Jeff Jakaitis after the second period, after giving up 5 goals on 23 shots, marking the second time this season that Jakaitis has been pulled early from a game.

Freshman goaltender Vince Wheeler saw action for the 3rd time this season; he faced 14 UNO shots in the third period and gave up goals to Nenad Gajic, Brandon Scero and Parse.

The 8-0 loss is the worst loss for the Lakers since losing to Michigan State by the same score in January of 2005.

LSSU surrendered 4 power play goals on 14 shots, in 6 opportunities. LSSU was only able to muster 4 shots in their 6 opportunities.
