Irish sweep Lakers

Freshman Ren Fauci

Feb. 22, 2003

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - A Lake Superior State hockey team that is averaging 1.4 goals per game in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association this season has compiled 10 goals in its last four games, but the improved scoring wasn't enough to skate past Notre Dame this weekend.

The Lakers (5-23-4 overall, 2-21-1 CCHA) remained winless on the road after losing 6-3 at Notre Dame on Saturday.

After coming back from a 3-0 deficit and losing 3-2 on Friday, LSSU scored first on Saturday. Freshman defenseman Ren Fauci found the net on the Lakers' second shot on goal to give his team a 1-0 lead at 5:57 of the first period. Mark Adamek and Chris Peterson drew the assists.

Fauci scored his second goal of the game and third of the season on the power play at 10:42 of the second period, tying the game, 2-2. Jon Booras and Mike Adamek earned assists on the Lakers' first man-advantage goal in eight games.

LSSU freshman defenseman Kory Scoran made it 3-3 with an unassisted goal at 16:21 of the second period. Notre Dame's Connor Dunlop, who led the game with two goals and an assist, answered with the game-winning power-play goal at 18:27.

Notre Dame (13-13-6 overall, 11-10-3 CCHA) put the game out of reach on third-period goals by Brett Lebda at 14:20 on the power play and Michael Chin at 18:15 -- an empty-net goal. Matt Amado and John Wroblewski also scored in the second period for the Irish.

LSSU goalie Terry Denike (2-5-1) totaled a career-high 50 saves, while Irish goaltender Morgan Cey (12-11-6) stopped 28 shots. The Lakers finished 1-for-2 on the power play, while Notre Dame was 3-for-6.

Lake Superior State plays its final home series next weekend against Bowling Green. Senior Jeremy Bachusz will be honored on Saturday, March 1.
