The Ferris State hockey team scored three goals in the third period to power past Northern Michigan 4-2 on Friday night.
The Bulldogs started the scoring in the first period with a goal by sophomore forward Andrew Mayer off assists from freshman defenseman Zac Tierney and junior defenseman Ryan Lowney. Northern Michigan would answer late in the second period with a goal of their own by senior forward Darren Nowick to lock the game up 1-1.
Nowick would score again just 41 seconds into the third period to give the Wildcats a 2-1 lead. The Bulldogs struck back when freshman forward Trevor Recktenwald tallied his first goal of the year on an FSU power play.
With just 2:05 left in the contest, Ferris State sophomore forward Andrew Dorantes got one by NMU’s Atte Tolvanen to give the Bulldogs a 3-2 lead. Freshman forward Corey Mackin put the game out of reach with an empty net goal with 45 seconds to go in the game.
Junior goaltender Charles Williams got the win in net for the Bulldogs, saving 25 shots on the night. Ferris improved to 8-7-4 on the season and will look to complete their first weekend sweep of the season tonight against Northern.
The puck drops tonight at 7:07 p.m. at Berry Event Center in Marquette, Mich.
