MARQUETTE - Northern Michigan scored two power-play goals and a short-handed marker to overtake Lake Superior State 3-1 in a Central Collegiate Hockey Association game Friday at the Berry Events Center. The Wildcats put an end to the Lakers' four-game unbeaten streak.

LSSU (1-1-3 overall, 0-1-2 CCHA) and NMU (4-1-0 overall, 1-0-0 CCHA) meet again at 7:05 p.m. Saturday at Taffy Abel Arena in Sault Ste. Marie.

NMU's Dirk Southern struck first with a short-handed goal 46 seconds into the game, but LSSU came back with an even-strength goal by freshman Josh Sim at 11:42, tying the game 1-1.

The Wildcats added power-play goals by Darin Olver at 4:32 of the second period and Jamie Milam at 15:54 of the third period to secure their first CCHA win. They finished 2-for-11 with the man-advantage, while the Lakers were 0-for-7.

The penalty-ridden Lakers picked up two five-minute majors for checking from behind, and captain Steve McJannet was disqualified early in the third period. LSSU was short-handed during most of the last 10 minutes of the game.

Winning goalie Bill Zaniboni, who went into the series with a .067 goals-against average, totaled 27 saves for the Wildcats, while LSSU goaltender Jeff Jakaitis had 20 saves.

Lakers Alex Dunn and Mark Adamek assisted on Sim's goal.
