BIG RAPIDS, MICH. – Ferris State completed the weekend sweep of Alaska Anchorage with a 3-2 win Saturday.
“In games like tonight’s, we can still find victory in defeat,” said head coach Matt Curley. “We had another solid effort, cleaning up our special teams play and finding a way to get one late to give ourselves a chance. We will get right back to work Monday and continue our progress forward.”
Jeremiah Luedtke put the Seawolves on the board first with his first goal of the season at 8:17 of the first period. Drake Glover found Luedtke on the back post who scored the powerplay goal. Nicolas Erb-Ekholm recorded an assist on the goal.
The Bulldogs responded less than 90 seconds later scoring on a delayed penalty thanks to traffic in front of the net.
Ferris took the lead with a second goal in the first period at 12:23.
After a scoreless second period, Zac Tierney scored quickly off the faceoff with a low shot to give the Bulldogs a 3-1 win at 10:26 of the third period.
Carmine Buono cut the Bulldog lead to 3-2 with his first career goal at 17:08 of the third, but the Seawolves could not score the equalizer despite playing with an empty net for the final 1:20. Corey Renwick and Tanner Schachle assisted on the goal.
Alaska Anchorage finished 1-for-3 on the powerplay and held Ferris State to 0-for-4.
The Bulldogs finished with a 27-23 lead in shots.
