The Grand Valley State University Lakers traveled to Yost Ice Arena this past weekend for a single game against the University of Michigan. The Lakers took the first game against the Wolverines at Georgetown earlier this season.
In this game, however, nothing would go right for GVSU. The Wolverines got on the board twice early with hard shots from the point. Though GVSU did rebound with plenty of chances, they were unable put anything by Michigan's goaltender, Andrew Godoshian, who played an excellent game.
While GVSU, without leading scorer Nick Biondo, was pressing at the end of the game by playing four forwards and only one defenseman, Michigan was able to take advantage of the situation and put three more goals behind Laker goaltender Grant Lyon. The game ended in a 5-0 GVSU loss.
Lyon finished with 23 saves.
This was the first time GVSU was shutout since Nov. 12 of last season against Western Michigan University.
Grand Valley State gets the Thanksgiving weekend off, but will return to the ice the following weekend with two away games against Indiana University. IU is a GMHL opponent and split with GVSU last season.
