Lakers beat St. Lawrence, 4-2

SAULT STE. MARIE - The Lake Superior State hockey team scored three unanswered goals in the second period to build a 4-1 lead and held on to beat St. Lawrence 4-2 Saturday at Taffy Abel Arena.

The Lakers (2-2-2 overall) posted their first victory over the Saints in four games and avenged last year's 6-1 loss and 2-2 tie in Canton, N.Y. LSSU won Saturday's game despite being out-shot, 43-22.

"Both teams played really hard both nights," said LSSU coach Frank Anzalone, whose team skated to a 2-2 tie Friday. "The thing about college hockey is a game like tonight, with two average teams playing as hard as they did, makes for a really good game to watch."

Freshman Dominic Osman gave LSSU a 1-0 lead with an even-strength goal at 10:34 of the first period. St. Lawrence's T.J. Trevelyan tied it 1-1 with a short-handed goal at 17:37.

LSSU's second-period surge included goals by freshman Derek Smith at 3:03, sophomore Mike Adamek at 14:43 and Osman at 14:01. Smith and Osman both scored with the man-advantage as the Lakers were 2-for-5 on the power play for the game.

The Lakers fended off St. Lawrence (1-5-3) until they pulled goaltender Kevin Ackley with 2:25 remaining in the third period. The Saints, who out-shot LSSU 20-2 in the final period, got another goal from Trevelyan at 18:48 during a power play.

"St. Lawrence really wanted to win tonight -- going into the start of their conference play," Anzalone said. "There were times when they played really well and handled us. We did a really good job killing penalties. There were still shots on net, but not the quality shots that Miami got last week."

Tim Krueckl, Alex Dunn, Osman, Ryan Reid, Nathan Ward, Kory Scoran and Ren Fauci drew assists for the Lakers.

LSSU freshman goaltender Jeff Jakaitis totaled 41 saves in his first career start. Ackley stopped 18 shots for St. Lawrence.

"Jakaitis did really well," Anzalone said. "He plays a style where his defense will have to be very accountable to him. He is still learning to handle rebounds. On the first shots, he was very strong."

LSSU travels to Nebraska-Omaha for a Central Collegiate Hockey Association series Nov. 7-8.
