NORTHFIELD, Minn. – Senior Sawyer Jacobson scored a pair of third-period goals to lift the St. Olaf College men's hockey team to a 2-1 victory over Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) opponent Gustavus Adolphus College on Saturday evening at Northfield Ice Arena.

Jacobson scored twice in the span of 2:58 inside the first six minutes of the second period for St. Olaf (2-1-1, 1-0-1 MIAC), which took five points from Gustavus (1-2-1, 0-1-1 MIAC) on the weekend. Jacobson's tallies were his first of the season as the senior recorded his first-career two-goal performance.

Junior goaltender Noah Parker posted his second-straight 40-save outing in net, finishing with 42 stops on 43 shots faced to improve to 2-1-1 on the season. Parker totaled 86 saves on 90 shots in the two games against the Gusties this weekend.

Neither team was able to muster a goal until Gustavus broke through at 19:57 of the second period on a goal by Tyler Rock. Jared Bromberg fired a shot from the right point off the glass behind the net and Rock was on hand at the left post to convert the rebound to send the Gusties to the locker room up by a goal.

After conceding the late goal, the Oles responded with Jacobson's pair of third-period goals to win their home opener. Jacobson grabbed his first of the night and season at 2:57, putting home a backhand off a rebound following a shut by Tuukka Totro. The goal was set up by Mitch Dolter winning a faceoff back to Lucas Mutschelknaus, who found Totro, with Mutschelknaus picking up his first-career point.

Just less than three minutes later, Caleb Callaway provided the helper on Jacobson's second of the night, winning a battle on the right boards before centering for a wide open Jacobson to one-time into the net in front.

Parker had double-digit saves in each period, including 16 in the third, to make Jacobson's two goals stand up. Gustavus pulled Chris Amsden, who finished with 19 saves, for the final 1:41 of the game, but Parker made six saves with the Gusties with the extra attacker as the Oles held on for the win.

St. Olaf travels to Menomonie, Wis. to face UW-Stout on Friday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m.
