Lake Superior sweeps American International

Lake Superior State University swept American International College, 5-0 and 4-1, as LSSU celebrated Great Lakes State Weekend in Sault Ste. Marie.

Friday night, LSSU jumped out to an early lead with senior Jeff Rainville scoring on the power play. Nathan Perkovich added his fourth goal of the season to give the Lakers a 2-0 lead heading into the lockerroom for the first intermission.

Barnabas Birkeland and Rainville added goals in the second period to give the Lakers a 4-0 edge over the Yellow Jackets. Josh Sim scored his fourth goal of the season in the third period to give the Lakers the 5-0 win.

Lake Superior goalie Jeff Jakaitis recorded his eighth career shutout by stopping all 23 AIC shots.

Saturday night, Dan Eves gave the Lakers a 1-0 lead with a power-play goal in the first period. AIC tied the game with Jereme Tendler scoring an even-strength goal midway through the second period.

Perkovich was able to regain the Lakers one-goal lead less than a minute later, scoring what would end up being the game-winning goal. Perkovich has scored a goal in each of the Lakers past five games. Rainville gave the Lakers an insurance goal before going into the locker room for the second intermission with a power-play goal, his third goal of the weekend.

Sault native Jason Blain scored his first goal for LSSU at the beginning of the third period to give the Lakers a 4-1 lead.

LSSU freshman goaltender Pat Inglis saved 14 of the 15 shots he faced.

Next weekend the Lakers travel to Bowling Green, Ohio, to resume CCHA play by taking on the Falcons of Bowling Green State University. Friday and Saturday's games both start at 7:05 p.m.
