ADRIAN, Mich. - In the first game of their final road trip of the season, the Concordia University Wisconsin men's hockey team suffered a lopsided defeat at the hands of 9th-ranked Adrian College, losing 9-2 on Friday night inside the Arrington Ice Arena.
CUW (2-17-3, 2-13-2 MCHA) got goals from sophomore Bradley Lukasz (East Grand Forks, Minn.) and freshman Cole Weiser (Beloit, Wis.), as well as 22 saves from senior goalie Everett Devlin (Terry, Mont.), but it wasn't enough to keep up with the MCHA's top team.
The Bulldogs (16-5-1, 14-2-1 MCHA) scored five goals in the first period, one in the second, and three more in the third to continue their dominance in Midwest Collegiate Hockey Association play.
After Adrian grabbed an early 1-0 lead, Lukasz tied the score at 1-1 off an assist from sophomore Dan Shilts (New Richmond, Wis.).
Later in the second period, with the Bulldogs leading 6-1, Weiser scored with the help of a Dustin Jonasson (West Fargo, N.D.) assist.
But it was all Adrian after that, as the Bulldogs won their third straight game in MCHA competition.
The two teams will meet again on Saturday afternoon, with the action set to begin at 2 p.m.
