Finlandia falls in MCHA semifinals

Finlandia's season came to a heartbreaking close with their 3-2 overtime loss last Saturday in Appleton, Wisconsin, to Marian in the MCHA tournament semifinals.

The Lions had beaten Northland, 6-2, Friday night to advance in the tournament.

In Saturday's loss, Mike Parks and Joe Beaudry scored to give FU a 2-1 lead heading into the third period, but Billy Schill scored at 6:45 of the third and then 3:34 into OT to give Marian the victory.

Lukas Alberer made 36 stops for the Lions.

The Sabres then fell to the Milwaukee School of Engineering in Sunday's final, 5-2.

Friday, Joe Juntilla made just 17 saves and Parks scored twice for Finlandia. Ryan Sullivan, Joe Lewis, Josh Paquette and Steve Piccoli also tallied for FU.

Finlandia finishes the year 10-13-3 and 9-8-3 in MCHA play.
