LSSU Swept by Michigan

LSSU was able to take a 0-1 lead on Friday night with Rick Schofield scoring his second goal of the season at 12:02 of the first period with Dan Eves and Zac MacVoy tallying the assists on Lake Superior’s lone goal in the game, but where unable to maintain the lead or score again falling to The University of Michigan 5-1.

Michigan was able to tally five unanswered goals after falling behind to LSSU on goals by Max, Pacioretty, Travis Turnbull, Aaron Palushaj, and two by Kevin Porter.

LSSU freshman goaltender Brian Machoney-Wilson made 28 saves on the 33 shots he faced, his worst showing of the season. Michigan’s Billy Sauer made 24 saves on LSSU’s 25 shots to record the win. LSSU went 0-for-5 on the power play while U of M was 1-for-3 with the extra man.

Saturday night LSSU fell behind early with Michigan’s Kevin Porter scoring his NCAA leading 12th goal of the season 2:58 into the game. LSSU was able to battle back with former Wolverine Zac MacVoy scoring his first goal as a Laker tipping in a shot from Dan Eves with Rick Schofield also getting an assist on the goal. John Scrymgeour continued his comeback from last season’s injury tipping in Jason Blain’s shot with Pat Aubry getting the second assist on the goal, giving LSSU the lead after the first period for the second night in a row.

Everything went downhill from there for the Lakers with Michigan scoring three goals on 4 shots in the first five minutes of the second period and chasing LSSU starting goaltender Pat Inglis. Michigan added two more goals against third period including an empty net goal at 15:59, while LSSU was unable to add another goal on the night.

Inglis made 9 saves on the 13 shots he faced in a losing effort while Mahoney-Wilson recorded 16 saves on 18 shots in relief, while Sauer recorded 34 saves on 36 Laker shots for the win. LSSU went 0-for-10 on the power play (0-for-15 on the weekend), while U of M scored one power play goal on their 3 opportunities (going 2-for-6 on the weekend).

Notes: Nathan Perkovich didn’t score a goal for the first weekend this season…LSSU goaltenders have a combined .873 Save Percentage this season and a 3.67 Goals Against Average…LSSU is 0-4 in CCHA play this season and are 2-for-26 on the power play in league games.

Next weekend LSSU plays a home and home series with Northern Michigan University in defense of the Cappo Cup. LSSU trails the all-time series, 26-50-7, including a terrible 9-30-3 record in Marquette and 17-20-4 record at home.
