LSSU’s Nathan Perkovich added an insurance goal, his 6th goal in 7 games with Rick Schofield and Steve Olesky notching assists on the goal. LSSU needed Perkovich’s insurance goal for the win with Wayne State scoring with 10 seconds remaining in the game with Tylor Michel putting one past sophomore goaltender Pat Inglis as the Warriors played with a 6th attacker.
