ANCHORAGE - Two-goal games for sophomores Matt Anholt and Tad Kozun and a shutout for netminder Olivier Mantha gave the Alaska Anchorage Seawolves a 5-0 win over the Ferris State Bulldogs and a Western Collegiate Hockey Association split Saturday night at the Sullivan Arena.

The Seawolves' (6-3-1, 3-2-1 WCHA) shutout ended an eight-game losing streak to the Bulldogs (5-5-2, 4-4-0 WCHA) and first win against FSU since Dec. 19, 1986, while head bench boss Matt Thomas picked up his first win against the club. UAA jumps into a two-way tie at No. 4 in the standings with Northern Michigan, each with seven points and now leads the league with 3.2 goals per game.

The exciting evening had multiple highlights as the Seawolves furnished two goals in the first and third and one in the second. UAA had five skaters collect multi-point nights, including Anholt and freshman Mason Mitchell, each with three points. Anholt produced two goals and an assist, while Mitchell picked up his first collegiate multi-point game with a goal and two helpers.

Jumping into the league's No. 1 spot for power plays was Kozun with four on the season after he netted back-to-back man-advantage goals at 5:08 of the second and 5:53 of the third. Nationally, Kozun is tied for No. 2, and is the lone Seawolf with multiple power-play goals this season. UAA went 2-for-5 on the power play tonight.

Furnishing two helpers on the night were senior Blake Tatchell - both on Kozun's power-play strikes - and sophomore Austin Azurdia. Tatchell now has 92 career points and needs eight more to become the 23rd Seawolf with 100 career points. The North Battleford, Sask., native is tied for No. 1 in the WCHA with 13 points.

Meanwhile, Mantha furnished his second career shutout with 25 saves on the night. His first shutout came last season on Jan. 22 against NMU (4-0). With the win, Mantha improves to 5-3-1 on the season - good for No. 2 in the conference with a 61.1 winning percentage. Picking up the loss for FSU was Charles Williams (1-4-1) with 20 saves.

The Seawolves will look to carry the momentum to next weekend when they host Penn State for a non-conference series at the Sullivan Arena on Nov. 20-21. The games are scheduled to commence at 7:07 p.m. AST.
