Finlandia defeats CUW men’s hockey 3-1


CUW (0-7-0) is still in search of their first 2010 win while Finlandia (1-4-0) broke into the victory column for the first time this season with a 3-1 conquest of the Falcons Friday night.

Both teams had 31 shots but the host Lions scored once in each of the first two periods and then held off Concordia after Ryan Roeming's goal cut the CUW deficit to 2-1 at 6:30 of the third session. An empty net goal by the hosts in the final minute ended the suspense.

Tony Hrkac's team was outshot 16-3 in the opening period but actually dominated possession over the final two frames.
