SAULT STE. MARIE, MICH--- The Lake Superior State Lakers steady downward slide continued over the weekend as Nebraska-Omaha invaded the Taffy Abel Arena and stole three of four points.
Friday night the Lakers took a two-all tie into the third period before surrendering three unanswered goals and falling 5-3.
Alex Dunn and Trent Campbell each scored and Matt Violin made 33 saves for LSSU.
Mick Lawrence scored a pair for the Mavericks and Chris Holt stopped 26 shots for the win.
The sad theme of the Lakers season showed up again in Saturday’s finale as the two teams skated to a 2-2 draw.
Once again the Lakers carried a lead, 3-1, into the third period, but a late let down forced them into their nearly unheard of seventh tie game of the season.
Dunn, B.J. Pelkey, and Nathan Ward lit the lamp for the Lakers and Jeff Jakaitis made 34 saves.
Bryan Marshall led the Mavs by scoring the game tying goal with the extra attacker on and just nine seconds left on the clock. He also assisted on the Mavs first goal.
In net, Chris Holt got the start again for UNO and stopped 26 of 29 shots on goal.
The Lakers (8-17-7, 7-11-6 CCHA) now sit in ninth place in the CCHA with a pair of games at Western Michigan looming next weekend.
