Box Score: MSOE 7, CUW
CEDARBURG, Wis. - The Concordia University Wisconsin men's hockey team fell to another highly-ranked opponent on Friday night, losing 7-3 to 14th-ranked MSOE at the Ozaukee Ice Center.
The 2nd period proved to be the difference, as MSOE (1-0, 1-0 MCHA) tallied four goals and opened up a 5-1 lead on the Falcons with 20 minutes to play.
Despite only putting two shots on goal in the first period, the Falcons (0-3, 0-1 MCHA) made the most of their chances as freshman Tanner Tryggestad (Amery, Wis.) cleaned up a rebound from close range, tying the game at one just before the first intermission.
The Raiders then broke the game open in the second period, during a frame in which the two teams combined to draw a total of 12 penalties.
After MSOE opened the third period with two more goals to stretch their lead to 7-1, the Falcons scored twice in the final four minutes of play.
Freshman Morgan Sanchez (Corona, Calif.) blasted a one-timer over the shoulder of MSOE goalie Connor Toomey, moments before junior Greg Douglas (Plano, Texas) found the back of the net with just over two minutes to go.
CUW travels to Milwaukee on Saturday to face MSOE for the second time in as many nights. Game time is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
