MTU's hot start cooled by Wisconsin

By Andy Bourdeau / MTU Beat Writer

Michigan Tech came into the weekend series with Wisconsin undefeated, but were unable to hold on to leads in both games as the Badgers swept the Huskies, 5-2 and 4-1 on the weekend.

The Huskies came out, weathered the storm both nights and took the lead in both games. Friday the Huskies took a 2-0 lead into the first intermission, but then UW rattled off five straight goals, including an empty-netter, to give the Huskies their first loss.

Scoring for MTU was Ryan Furne and Ricky Doriott, with Doriott's being his first career goal. Kevin Genoe started in net and finished with 27 saves on 31 shots.

On Saturday, the two teams skated to a 0-0 tie at the end of 1, and then MTU started the scoring with a power-play goal by Alex MacLeod. The Badgers answered with four consecutive goals and the weekend sweep.

Genoe was in net again, making 23 saves on 27 shots.

“We did some very good things this weekend,” said Michigan Tech head coach Jamie Russell. “We are certainly heading in the right direction. We had a lapse at the end of the second period which was the difference (Saturday) night."

MTU (3-2-2, WCHA 1-2-1) will have next weekend off, then travel to Duluth for a weekend series with the Bulldogs, the last games for MTU in the old DECC.
