SIOUX FALLS, N.D. - Lake Superior State men's hockey dropped their third game in a row, against one of the top teams in the nation by falling to North Dakota of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference 7-4.

The Lakers (3-14-0, 3-9-0 Western Collegiate Hockey Association) held a 4-1 lead early in the second period after a Mitch Nardi (1-3--4) rebound slipped past Zane McIntyre who replaced the starting net minder Cam Johnson for UND. Alex Globke (1-3--4) and Scott Patterson (1-1--2) chipped in on the assists

Freshman defenseman Kyle Chatham (1-2--3) got the scoring started for the game 9:35 into the opening frame with an unassisted goal. The goal was the first in the young blue liner's career with the Lakers. Lake Superior took a three goal lead into the first intermission with goals by Gus Correale (1-2--3) and Eric Drapluk (1-3--4) in the first period. Freshman James Roll (0-8--8) continued his hot start to a career in the anchor with his eighth assist on the season on the Correale goal.

North Dakota, however, held up to their top ranking by shocking the Lakers with five goals during the second frame to take a 5-4 lead into the second period. Tucker Poolman added a pair of goals in the second period to spark the UND run.

Freshman net minder Gordon Defiel started the game for the Lakers and was resilient in the loss, in which he surrendered seven goals while turning aside 36 of the 43 shots he faced. Defiel however fell victim to a penalty kill which surrendered three goals on the four power play opportunities for North Dakota.

McIntyre registered the win for North Dakota after replacing Johnson who gave up three goals on 12 shots. McIntyre recorded 12 saves and allowed the single goal to Nardi.

UND finished with 43 shots on the night and converted 3-4 power play opportunities, compared to the Lakers registering 25 shots and failing to convert either of their two power play opportunities.
