The Wayne State Warriors' seven-game, non-conference road trip continued with pair of games against the Brown Bears in Providence, Rhode Island last weekend.
The Warriors (2-7-0, 1-1-0 CHA) got the weekend off to a solid start by biting the Bears 5-3 at the Meehan Auditorium.
The win broke a three-game slide in which the Warriors were outscored 10-1.
Wayne's top line did the majority of the damage. Jason Bloomingburg (pictured) led the charge with a goal and two assists, while Mike Forgie and Jared Katz also turned on the lamp.
Jason Baclig and blueliner Dan Illiakis scored their first goals of the season for the Warriors.
Freshman Brett Bothwell got the start in net for the Green and Gold and stopped 36 of 39 shots for his second win of the year.
Farmington Hills native Jeff Prough led the Bears with a pair of goals.
Things got uglier for the visitors in game two with the Bears capturing an easy 7-3 victory.
Brown dominated the series finale and led at one point 7-1. Sean Muncy paced the Bears with two goals and an assist and his centerman, Sean Dersch, registered three helpers.
It was the Bear's first win in five games this season and their first "W" since beating St. Lawrence, 3-2, in game 2 of the ECACHL first round playoffs on March 4.
Wayne State freshman Ryan Bernardi scored his first two collegiate goals and Baclig notched his second of the weekend in the loss.
Will Hooper 26 of 33 shots in the Wayne State net.
The Warriors will continue their road trip "up north" with a pair of games against the Lake Superior State Lakers in Sault Ste. Marie this weekend.
