LSSU take 4 points from BGSU

Lake Superior State University’s men’s hockey team opened the CCHA regular season home portion of their schedule with a bang against schedule cluster mate Bowling Green State University.

LSSU took an early lead as many spectators at the Taffy Abel Arena were still finding their seats on the first night of parent’s weekend with Josh Sim scoring his first goal of the season with Troy Schwab assisting just 1:17 into the first period.

Both teams battled scoreless for the remainder of the first period and second period with LSSU taking 3 straight penalities in the first period and BGSU taking 3 straight in the second period.

Lake Superior’s Zac MacVoy notiched his 5th goal of the short season at 9:17 of the third period battling for the puck in front of the Bowling Green net with Rick Schofield and Simon Gysbers assisting to give LSSU a 0-2 lead. LSSU’s Will Acton appeared to add another goal later in the period on a shot that appeared to beat Bowling Green’s Jimmy Spratt go through the net and hit the glass behind the goal.

Lake Superior goaltender Brian Mahoney-Wilson turned back 9 Falcon shots in the third period to conserve the first shutout of the season for the Lakers.

LSSU went 0-for-4 on the power play, recording 3 shots while Ferris State went 0-for-5 with 7 shots with the power play. LSSU goaltender Brian Mahoney-Wilson recorded 28 saves to record his first collegiate shutout and third win of the season, while BGSU’s Jimmy Spratt allowed 2 goals on 20 LSSU shots.

On Saturday evening LSSU jumped out to a big first period lead scoring three goals in the opening 20 minutes of the game. Freshman Kyle Haines scoring his first collegiate goal 6:04 into the first period with Nathan Perkovich and Brad Cooper assisting. Will Acton got in on the scoring, notching his first of the season at 12:19 of the first period with MacVoy and John Scrymgeour assisting. Troy Schwab gave LSSU a 0-3 lead with a power play goal with under 30 seconds remaining in the period with Steven Kaunisto and Simon Gysbers assisting.

After LSSU mounted a seemingly insurmountable 3 goal lead Bowling Green put in 4 goals in a less than a 10 minute span late in the second period including one on the power play and one shorthanded. Bowling Green’s Dan Sexton (PP), David Solway, Jacob Cepis, and Brandon Svendsen (SH) each scored in the Falcon’s offensive flurry, which included 14 shots.

Schwab tied the game up at 4-4 at 3:30 of the third period with Josh Sim and Fred Cassiani assisting.

After playing the remainder of the third period and overtime scoreless LSSU was set to see their first shootout of the CCHA season. BGSU’s James Perkin scored as the first shooter in the shootout putting the puck past Mahoney-Wilson. LSSU responded with Steven Kaunisto notching a goal on his first shootout try. Mahoney-Wilson stopped the next BGSU shooter and LSSU took a 1-2 lead with Rick Schofield making his attempt. LSSU earned their second point on the night with Mahoney-Wilson stopping BGSU’s Jacaob Cepis shot.

Lake Superior went 1-for-6 on the power play, 1-for-10 on the weekend, while BGSU went 1-for-4 with the extra attacker, 1-for-9 on the weekend. LSSU goaltender Brian Mahoney-Wilson made 33 saves in the game including 3 in overtime, plus two in the shootout. BGSU’s Jimmy Spratt allowed 4 goals on the 36 LSSU shots he faced.

Pat Inglis did not see action this weekend suffering from what was reported as a high ankle sprain.
