Lake Superior takes home Peters/Mason Cup

Lake Superior State University skated away with the inaugural offering of the Peters/Mason Cup after taking three points from Bemidji State University over the weekend.

Friday night, the Lakers where able to extend their winning streak to five games with a 2-1 win over the Beavers. The Lakers where able to get on the board first after two scoreless periods in Bemidji with Sault native Marty Gurnoe scoring his first college goal. Bemidji was able to tie the game with Rob Sirianni scoring on the power play, but senior Laker forward Mike Adamek scored the game-winning goal in his first outing of the year.

Laker goalie Jeff Jakaitis stopped 25 of the 26 shots he faced including 5 of 6 while shorthanded. BSU goaltender Matt Climie allowed 2 goals on 23 shots.

Saturday evening the Lakers again held the Beavers of Bemidji State scoreless in the first two periods. The Lakers were able to take a 1-0 lead into the locker room after the second period thanks to a short handed goal by Kory Scoran. BSU fought back in the third period and tied the game at 1-1 before Colin Nicholson scored a top shelf backhander to put the Lakers up with just over two minutes remaining.

The Lakers joy was short lived with Bemidji State’s Rob Sirianni scoring less than a minute later to force overtime. Neither team was able to score during the 5 minute overtime stanza, and the Lakers where awarded the Peters/Mason challenge cup following the game.

Laker goalie Jeff Jakaitis stopped 41 of the 43 shots he faced including all 4 shots he faced during overtime. BSU goaltender Layne Sedevie allowed 2 goals on 24 shots.

Lake Superior
is now 5-3-2 against nationally ranked opponents.

“I’ll tell you something Lake Superior State is a good hockey team; I’m glad we only play then twice this year.” Bemidji State University head coach Tom Serratore said after the game.

LSSU will square off against former coach Jeff Jackson Saturday and Sunday at Notre Dame. The teams play at 7:05 p.m. on Saturday and 2:05 on Sunday.
