SAULT STE. MARIE - Lake Superior State improved to 2-3-1 against nationally-ranked opponents by beating No. 10 Miami 3-2 on Saturday at Taffy Abel Arena and handing the RedHawks their first Central Collegiate Hockey Association loss.

LSSU (4-3-3 overall, 3-3-2 CCHA) out-scored Miami 3-1 in the first period and held on for the win. Sophomore forward Dan Eves talled the game-winning goal at 17:23 of the opening period and assisted on Derek R. Smith's goal three minutes earlier to lead the Lakers.

LSSU captain Steve McJannet gave the Lakers a 1-0 lead at 8:12 of the first period. Miami's Nathan Davis tied it 1-1 at 12:49.

The Lakers maintained their two-goal lead until a costly turnover in their own zone enabled MU's Matt Davis to score at 8:29 of the second period.

Laker goaltender Jeff Jakaitis totaled 23 saves for the win. He stopped seven of eight shots in the second period and was 9-for-9 in the third. Miami netminder Jeff Zatkoff totaled 17 saves.

Both teams were 0-for-3 on the power play.

Colin Nicholson, Ren Fauci, Barnabas Birkeland, Troy Schwab and Matt Restoule also had assists for the Lakers.
