WMU swept by UNO Mavericks

Western Michigan went out west last weekend and came home swept by Nebraska-Omaha.

Friday, Mark Letestu (pictured) tallied a hat trick, but it wasn't enough as the Mavericks took a 7-5 win. Dave Krisky and Brian Bicek also scored, while Daniel Bellissimo stopped 21 shots.

Former Michigan State forward Nenad Gajic had a goal and an assist for UNO.

"It was an entertaining game for the fans, but as a coach gives you grey hairs," said Broncos' head coach Jim Culhane. "We can draw a lot of positives from this game. I thought we played with energy and attacked their goal pretty well."

Saturday night, the Mavericks pasted the Broncos, 6-0. Bellissimo made 20 saves for WMU (2-4-0, 2-4-0 CCHA).

Portage native Scott Parse recorded a goal and two assists and Canton native Brandon Scero scored the opening goal that proved to be the game-winner.

"UNO is a good offensive team and they executed well on the power play," said Culhane. "There wasn't much five-on-five play, which I felt we needed to have in order to be successful. We took too many penalties tonight and we will address that as a team."

Western Michigan hosts Wayne State Saturday night at Lawson Ice Arena in a homecoming for WSU head coach Bill Wilkinson, formerly WMU's head coach from 1982-1998.
