PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Lake Superior State suffered their second consecutive road loss of the season at the hands of Robert Morris. The Lakers (0-4-0, 0-2-0 WCHA) were held scoreless by Dalton Izyck of the Colonials (2-0-0, 0-0-0 AHA).

The teams skated through the first period without exchanging any goals. Gordon Defiel was once again named the starting goaltender, squaring off against Izyck. Robert Morris capitalized late in the second period and notched the goal that put the Colonials ahead for the remainder of the game. The goal, Scott Jacklin's second of the series, was scored with just 1:14 remaining in the second period.

An early goal in the third period by Cody Wydo (5:33) put the Colonials up by two before David Friedmann gave Robert Morris their third goal on a power play with 5:08 remaining in the game.

Defiel turned away 37 shots in the effort and kept the Lakers in the game throughout much of the competition.

The Lakers went 0-4 on the power play while Robert Morris converted two of their seven chances.

The Lakers will hit the road again next weekend as they square off with Notre Dame and former Laker head coach Jeff Jackson for a two game non-conference tilt.
