Union of men’s hockey players sweeping over Lake Superior State

SAULT STE. MARIE, Michigan – Unlike Friday night, the Union College men’s hockey team got off to a great start in their rematch against Lake Superior State. The Dutch were leading 2: 0.

But their inability to stay out of the box cost them against the Lakers.

Timo Bakos scored two of his three power play goals when Lake Superior State rallied and won 5-2 at the Tuffy Abel Arena without a conference call.

The Dutch (1-4-1) conceded two power-play goals on Friday’s 7-4 loss, a game in which they lost 5-2 after the first period. Union have scored seven goals in their past three games since scoring 6-of-6 on penalties last Friday against Colorado College.

“We got an old bug from the penalty spot,” Union head coach Rick Bennett said in a telephone interview. “It wasn’t good for us. Until we figure this out, we will get the same results. This will be limited in practice this week. “

Michael Hodge put Union ahead 1-0 at 47 seconds into the game. It was the second match in a row in which the freshman scored a goal.

Sophomore striker Tyler Watkins put Union ahead 2-0 on the power play in 4:44 of the second period. Then everything fell apart for the Union.

Jacob Nordqvist started his comeback at Lake Superior with a goal just over seven minutes after the start of the second. At the end of the period, Bakos scored his first power goal.

Bakos ended the 7:02 draw and came in third with his second most power result. Empty-netted goals by Josh Nixon and Bakos sealed the Lakers’ 5-3 win.

Union goalkeeper Connor Murphy, who was kicked out on Friday after conceding four goals in the first period, started Saturday’s game. The Hudson Falls native made 26 saves.

Bennett said that Murphy played better and cannot be blamed for the goals scored.

“He’s rested,” Bennett said. “Garrett [Nieto] did a good job the night before. I wanted to go with Connor to see how he got back. He proved that we are right, that he is a game. “

Union kicks off the ECAC hockey match on Friday when Capital Region rival RPI takes part at 7:00 pm at Messa Rink Stadium.
