The Ferris State hockey team received big contributions from sophomore Andrew Dorantes last weekend.
The 5-foot-10 forward from Waterford tallied three points in two games for the Bulldogs as they split a series with the Michigan Tech Huskies. In the first game of the weekend, Dorantes scored a goal late in the first period and assisted on a Corey Mackin goal in the second. The Dawgs couldn’t hold onto an early lead and lost in an overtime thriller 5-4 with just 46 seconds remaining in the contest. Ferris would even out the series on the following night, and Dorantes played a big role once more.
On Halloween night the Bulldogs and Huskies were locked in at 2-2 as the end of the game was nearing.
With 1:21 to play in the third period, Dorantes got one by MTU goalie Jamie Phillips off assists from Brandon Anselmini and Corey Mackin. Ferris State won 3-2 to improve their record to 3-3-2 on the season.
Dorantes has five points this season with two goals and three assists. He will look to tack on some more points this upcoming weekend as the Bulldogs take on the WCHA’s top team in the Minnesota State Mavericks.
The puck will drop at 7:07 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 6 and Saturday Nov. 7 at the Ewigleben Ice Arena in Big Rapids.
