ASHLAND, Wis. — The Lawrence University hockey team scored two goals in the final 25 seconds to rally for a 3-2 Midwest Collegiate Hockey Association victory over Northland College on Saturday at the Bay Area Civic Center.
The dramatic finish allowed Lawrence (7-9-3, 6-5-3 MCHA) to complete a weekend sweep of the Lumberjacks (6-10-3, 5-7-2). Lawrence beat Northland 3-0 on Friday night.
Lawrence trailed 2-1 and had pulled goaltender Peter Emery late in the game. Freshman Gustav Lindgren scored off an assist from Brad Scurfield with an extra attacker on the ice to tie the game at 2-2 with 25 seconds left.
The Vikings then scored the game-winning goal just nine seconds later as Sam Johnson found the back of the net with 16 seconds remaining. William Thoren and Matt Hughes both picked up assists on that goal.
Northland had taken a 1-0 at the 15:57 mark of the first, but the Vikings tied it when Nate Scurfield scored off an assist from his brother, Brad, at the 19:38 mark. The score stayed that way until Chad Liley gave Northland a 2-1 lead at the 1:25 mark of the third.
Emery stopped 29 shots to pick up the win. Ian Perrier made 28 saves and took the loss.
