LSSU Falls to Lakehead Univeristy

Lakehead University came out Saturday night and beat the Lakers for the first time in 23 years. The LSSU game at the Pullar was Lakehead’s third game in three nights after traveling 670 miles during the same period. Lakehead fell 8-1 on Thusday night against the University of Minnesota-Duluth, and 6-1 against Michigan Tech on Friday night.

The Lakers sported their throwback uniforms in the game which they will wear at various times during this season. The announced attendance at the game was 1500.

Play was fairly even in the first period and the Lakers applied some strong pressure in the second but Lakehead’s Chris Whitley was solid in goal. Former Soo Greyhound Jeff Richards returned to the Sault in style opening the scoring at 14:34 of the first period. Laker Freshman Pat Aubry tied the game for the Lakers at two and a half minutes later (17:08) with the only assist going to senior Dominic Osman.

Richards scored his second goal of the game at 10:58 of the second period, and Lakehead’s Mathieu Maissoneauve made it 3-1 with a power-play goal at 1:36 of the third period, while Josh Sim was serving his time in the penalty box for roughing.

Jeff Jakaitis was strong in goal giving up both of Richard’s goals in the two periods he played totaling 21 saves. Freshman Pat Inglis supported his effort to get playing time this season by allowing just one goal, on the power play, and saving 8 shots while replacing Jakaitis in the third period.

The Lakers went 0-for-11 on the power play, while the Thunderwolves were 1-for-2 with the man-advantage. LSSU had 11 shots with the man advantage, 36 for the game, while Lakehead had 4 shots with the extra man, and 32 in the game. The Lakers put three shots off the Lakehead goal posts, and one shot off the cross bar. The Lakers where 35-22 in the faceoff circle, with Troy Schwab going 15-6 and Matt Martello going 7-1.

The Lakers travel to Columbus, Ohio to open the CCHA season against Ohio State next Friday and Saturday.
