Score: CUW 2, LU 2 (OT)
CEDARBURG, Wis. -Concordia University Wisconsin found its offensive rhythm in the third period scoring two unanswered goals en route to a 2-2 tie against Lawrence University on Saturday night during Midwest College Hockey Association play at the Ozaukee Ice Center.
The Falcons (0-5-1, 0-3-1 MCHA) fired 15 shots on goal during the third period, scoring the game-tying tally with less than nine minutes remaining in regulation. Despite being outshot 59-33, CUW found ways to score with both teams at full strength by making crisp passes and catching LU's goalie out of position.
During the extra session neither team was able to find the back of the net, as the shots on goal were slightly in the Vikings favor, 5-3.
Sophomore Russell Johnson (Monticello, Minn.) put the Falcons on the board 3:33 into the third set of 20 minutes, with Lukas Allen (Lakeville, Minn.) and sophomore Shay Klitzke (Annandale, Minn.) assisting on the goal. The score was Johnson's second of the season.
Less than eight minutes later sophomore Brandon Bayer (Milwaukee, Wis.) scored his first goal of the season to tie the contest at 2-2. Juniors Graylyn Douglas (Plano, Texas) and Greg Douglas (Plano, Texas) assisted on the tally.
CUW goalie Josh Lehr (freshman, Appleton, Wis.) recorded 57 saves in the contest and rejected a combined 43 shots on goal during the second and third periods.
After a scoreless opening period, Sam Johnson scored an unassisted goal, his first goal of the season, to give LU a 1-0 lead 14:54 into the second period.
Brad Scurfield also scored his first goal of the season when Phil Bushbacher set him up 1:59 into the third period to give the Vikings a 2-0 advantage.
