SAULT STE. MARIE - Sophomore defenseman Derek A. Smith notched two goals and two assists, and senior goaltender Will Ciccone stopped 24 of 25 shots on goal to lead the Lake Superior State hockey team to a 5-1 victory over York University in Friday's exhibition opener at Taffy Abel Arena.

The Lakers gave Jim Roque a win in his head coaching debut. They play host to the U.S. Under-18 team in another exhibition contest at 7:05 p.m. Saturday.

Smith gave LSSU a 2-0 lead with power-play goals at 3:29 and 13:49 of the first period. Nathan Ward added a power-play goal at 1:18 of the second period, and Troy Schwab increased the lead to 4-0 with an even-strength goal at 19:30 of the middle stanza.

Derek R. Smith scored a power-play goal 21 seconds into the third period as LSSU finished 4-for-8 with the man advantage.

LSSU killed off all 10 York power plays, but the Lions spoiled Ciccone's shutout with a goal at 7:15 of the third period.

Ciccone totaled 24 saves, while York's Kevin Druce and Jimmy Williams combined for 44 saves.

Jon Booras, Jason Miller, Dominic Osman, Mark Adamek, Jeff Rainville and Trent Campbell also had assists for LSSU.
