The Forester men's hockey team was defeated 3-1 by visiting Marian University Saturday night. Junior Dave Sharpe scored Lake Forest's first goal of the season.
Sharpe's score was assisted by sophomore Roberto Caparelli and freshman Luke Swardenski at the 3:01 mark of the second period.
Marian, however, tied the game just 72 seconds later on a power play goal and the score remained tied for the rest of the period.
The visitors took the lead mid-way though the third period and added a short-handed, empty net goal with 1:07 to play in the contest.
The Foresters out-shot their guests 28-20 in the game but could not convert any of their seven power play opportunities.
Lake Forest is now 0-2-0 overall and in Midwest Collegiate Hockey Association play this season while the Sabres raised their overall record to 3-1-0 and league mark to 2-0-0.
The Foresters will continue conference play with a home-and-home series against Concordia University Wisconsin next weekend. The teams will play in Lake Forest Friday night at 7:00 and at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee Friday Saturday at 2:45 p.m.
