SAULT STE. MARIE - Lake Superior State's defense held strong for 46:29 and enabled the Laker hockey team to hold a one-goal lead and beat Ferris State 3-2 Friday at Taffy Abel Arena.

LSSU (5-16-4 overall, 3-13-3 Central Collegiate Hockey Association) posted back-to-back wins for the first time this season, while FSU (10-12-3 overall and 7-10-2) fell to 0-3-1 in its last four games.

Game 2 of the series is at 7:05 p.m. Saturday.

Ferris State's Adam Miller scored at 3:47 of the first period to give the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead, but Laker Josh Sim answered at 5:00. Zac MacVoy and Troy Schwab assisted on Sim's third goal of the season.

Pat Aubry tallied his third goal of the year to give LSSU a 2-1 lead at 6:13 of the first period. Dan Eves and Chad Nehring had assists. The Bulldogs tied it 2-2 at 13:31 on a goal by Mike Embach.

LSSU, which has been outscored in the second and third periods by an average of 2.6 to 1.4 goals per game this season, blanked the Bulldogs during the final two periods.

MacVoy tallied the game-winner at 1:36 of the second period during LSSU's first power play of the game. Will Acton and Simon Gysbers set up the play and drew assists. MacVoy, who has six goals this season, was also tripped in front of FSU's net while attempting to score later in the game and manufactured the team's best scoring chances of the night.

LSSU came up empty during its final seven power-play opportunities of the game, but held FSU scoreless on all three power plays.

LSSU goaltender Brian Mahoney-Wilson totaled 21 saves, including 11 in the third period. FSU goalie Pat Nagle had 13 saves.
