Broncos Swept in Columbus

The Western Michigan Broncos (10-13-1, 5-12-1 CCHA) would probably like to forget their entire weekend as they were pummeled in a pair of conference games on the road at second-place Ohio State. The back-to-back losses at the Value City Arena give the Broncs their third, three-game losing streak of the season and six “L’s” in their last seven games.

Friday night the Broncos lost a heartbreaking back and forth 4-3 game to the Buckeyes in Columbus.

WMU led three times in the game, but Matt Beaudoin’s second goal of the night on the power-play goal at 5:12 of the third period gave the Buckeyes their third win in four games.

Vince Bellissimo and Pat Dwyer each registered a goal and assist for the Broncos, while Dan Bellissimo stopped 29 of 33 shots on the other end.

Matt Beaudoin kept his hot hand in Saturday’s finale as he scored another pair of goals and an assist as the Buckeyes cruised to a 7-0 victory.

Dan Bellissimo started between the pipes, but had a very off night by giving up 5 goals on 18 shots. He was relieved by Eric Marvin near the midway mark of the second period. Marvin finished the night with 12 saves on 14 shots.

Western now sits in a disappointing tenth-place tie with Ferris State in the CCHA. The Broncs will try to get back on the winning track as they host the recently surging Miami Redhawks in two games back at the Lawson Arena in Kalamazoo this weekend.
