Davenport @ Miami

The second game in this weekend double-header ended again with Miami in the win column. The win was a convincing one that gave goaltender Crosley a well-deserved shut-out. Davenport University managed to fend off Miami until about half-way into the 1st period when they scored 2 back-to-back goals by Crandall (unassisted) and Gargasz (Vanroboys). These 2 quick goals would be all that was scored in the first period for either team. The 2nd period proved to be more of the same story as Miami continued to rack up the points. Sciales scored 2 goals within 30 seconds of each other to make the score 4-0 (with helpers from Gargasz, Peterson and Vanroboys). Pugliese buried another point 6 minutes later with assists from Edmondson and Crandall. A few minutes after Pugliese’s goal, Sloan scored (Von Aulock) to end the period with a score of 6-0. The 3rd period is when the scoring started to cool off. The only goal scored in the period was from Vanroboys (Clingel, Crandall) 4 minutes in. The shots on goal were very similar to the day prior, Miami had 40 SOG and Davenport had 10 SOG. The final score was Miami 7, Davenport 0.

They hit the ice running and scored a goal 3:26 minutes in from Lutz (Anderson). Lutz netted another point minutes later with help from Astor to take the lead. With the score remaining 3-2 until less than 5 minutes left in the game, MSU was able to open the floodgates and score an additional 3 goals before the final buzzer.
