Falcon men’s hockey closes out season with 5-4 win
Ozaukee Ice Center
What had been a LONG season came to an exciting conclusion on Saturday evening as Concordia skated past Lake Forest 5-4 in their season finale after dropping a 5-3 road decision to the Forresters on Friday night.
Mike Lezotte and Brandon Bayer staked CUW to an early 2-0 lead Saturday night with first period tallies, but the visitors scored 3 consecutive goals to take the lead midway through period two.
It looked like business as usual for the 2-22-1 Falcons before Jonathon Smith and Joseph Greg Douglas each lit the lamp by period's end to make it 4-3 Concordia.
Mike Mulally made it 5-3 Concordia in the third before Lake Forest's Tom Bark cut the deficit to one.
From that point on it was up to goalie Dustin LeClaire to hold onto the one goal advantage... and allow Tony Hrkac' team to enter next season with a winning streak.
