Lions' men and women falter over weekend

Combined in their four games over the weekend, the Finlandia men and women could only manage one point as the men tied the Milwaukee School of Engineering Saturday night at home.

In the tie, Mike Parks' power-play goal with 5:54 left in the third period sealed the game for the Lions (5-7-2, 5-3-2 MCHA). Ryan Sullivan and Jason Aldrich also scored to back Lukas Alberer's 31-save outing.

The previous night, FU fell, 7-1, as only Sullivan could find the back of the net. Joe Juntilla finished with 29 saves.

Saturday night, the women lost, 6-2, to Lake Forest at home. Brenda Peterson and captain Sara Sleik were the goal scorers. Katie Markovich stopped 27 shots in net.

Yesterday afternoon, Finlandia could only muster 10 shots on net, but their first one 1:47 into the game, went in as Peterson had the Lions up 1-0 early on Wisconsin-Stevens Point; the visitors scored the next five for a 5-1 win.

Corinne Czekaj made 28 stops for FU (7-8-1, 1-7-0 NCHA).

The men host Marian this weekend while the women host Wisconsin-Superior Saturday and play an exhibition against the Toronto Rattlers traveling team Sunday.
