LAKE FOREST, Ill. – Eleven different Adrian players figured in the scoring as the No. 5 Bulldogs (6-0, 6-0) remained unbeaten by sweeping the first of two weekend series against Lake Forest College (1-6, 1-5) with a 4-1 win, in a Saturday afternoon Midwest Collegiate Athletic Association Southern Division game.
The first period was almost identical as last night's game as the Bulldogs built a 3-0 lead exactly as they had the day before. In both games, Adrian got two quick goals before the game was five minutes old and added a third around the mid-period mark.
Just over four minutes into the game, Shelby Gray would net a power-play goal from Ryan Gieseler and Josh Ranalli. Then, 42 seconds later Andrew Dovey would score the eventual game winner from Micki Mihailovich for a 2-0 lead. Zach Wilson's goal from Duston Hebebrand and Shaquille Merasty would stake the lead at 3-0, with just over nine minutes left in the first period.
The Foresters would get their only goal in the second period on the power play for a 3-1 game. The Bulldogs appeared flawless 5-on-5 for the weekend, with all three Lake Forest goals in both games coming with the man-advantage.
Adrian almost outshot Lake Forest by a 2-to-1 margin (49-27), as James Hamby turned aside 26 shots for the win.
The Bulldogs will stay active during the holiday break by hosting St. Mary's next Saturday evening at 7 p.m., Nov. 24th in a non-conference game. The team resumes conference play the following weekend with a pair of games against a much improved Concordia team, who are currently in second place behind the Bulldogs in MCHA standings, on Nov. 30th and Dec. 1st.
