Bulldogs tally first sweep of the season


By Tom Morelli/Ferris State Beat Writer

No. 20 ranked Ferris State propelled themselves in a tie for second place with Notre Dame in the CCHA standings, following a weekend sweep on the road against Bowling Green.

The Bulldogs encountered a close call in Friday's opener after seeing their 3-0 lead vanish in the third, thanks to a trio of scores by the Falcons within a four-minute span.

Ferris State however would rebound in the extra session, as Scott Czarnowczan and Kyle Bonis helped set-up Garrett Thompson's game-winner with just 14 seconds elapsed.

Sophomore C.J. Motte stopped 33 of 36 shots between the pipes for the Bulldogs, while Bowling Green's Andrew Hammond was credited with 23 saves.

In Saturday's contest, Ferris State earned their first sweep of the season by recording a 3-1 decision.

Junior Andy Huff gave the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead with under six minutes left in the first by blasting a shot past Falcons' netminder Tommy Burke to tally his fourth lamp-lighter of the campaign.

Bonis scored the game-winning goal in the second, notching his second power-play marker in as many nights.

Although Bowling Green's Bryce Williamson would cut the deficit in half a mere two minutes into the final stanza, senior forward Travis Ouellette added an empty-netter with 30 seconds left off a feed from Bonis to secure the victory.

Motte recorded 29 stops to improve to 6-4-2 as a starter.

Ferris State (6-4-2 overall, 5-3-0-0 CCHA) is idle this week but returns to action on Nov. 30 and Dec 1 when they play host to Michigan (4-6-1 overall, 2-5-1-1 CCHA).
