  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic.

Hockey team splits weekend series with Lake Superior


Adam Berkle moments away from scoring a goal against Lake Superior State goalie during the weekend.

The BG hockey team defeated the Lake Superior State Lakers 6-2 on Saturday night at the BG Ice Arena.

In Friday’s game, where the team lost 5-3, junior forward Ryan Carpenter scored two goals for the Falcons, as goaltender Tommy Burke made 27 saves in the loss. BG also received a goal from Adam Berkle in the losing effort.

The Falcons held a 2-0 lead in the second period, however LSSU came back to tie the game. Carpenter’s second goal of the night gave the Falcons a 3-2 lead, but the Lakers scored three unanswered goals including an empty net goal to beat the Falcons.

“We got out-competed in our own rink,” BG coach Chris Bergeron said. “Full marks to Lake Superior. They get down three times on the road. They’ve had a tough stretch here. They showed some resiliency and kept playing. We stopped playing.”

On Saturday night, freshman goaltender Tomas Sholl made 25 saves and BG received two goals each from Mark Cooper and Berkle. Ben Murphy and Matt Pohlkamp each recorded a goal in the winning effort.

Lake Superior scored first 2:05 into the first period. A delayed penalty called on the Lakers pulled Sholl from the net for the extra attacker. However, with the puck deep in their offensive zone, a pass couldn’t be handled and slid into the Falcons empty net.

The Falcons fought back to score three goals during the final 13 minutes of the first period.

“To get three goals in the first period was a great push back to that play,” Bergeron said. “I was proud of our guys.”

BG continued its scoring with two more goals in the second period to give the team a 5-1 lead. Berkle added an insurance goal in the third period for the Falcons.

“Give full marks to our older people, the seniors, the juniors,” Bergeron said. “Those guys were great and then you’ve got your freshmen and sophomores following in line.”

The Falcons scored at least one goal in each period and outshot the Lakers 42-27 during Saturday’s contest.

With the victory, the Falcons’ overall record is now 13-10-5 and 10-7-3 in the WCHA. The loss dropped the Lakers’ overall record to 12-13-1 and 8-10-0 in the WCHA. BG is now 8-3-2 at the BG Ice Arena and 11-4-1 when holding a lead after the second period.

The Falcons will host the Michigan Tech Huskies next weekend at the BG Ice Arena. The two-game home series will conclude a six-game home stand for BG. The puck will drop at 7:07 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights.
