Ege comes up big for Seawolves in win over RPI
For the second Friday in a row, freshman Wyatt Ege scored a game-tying goal in the third period to spur a come-from-behind Seawolf triumph. Except this time, the 20-year-old from Elk River, Minnesota scored an additional goal in the third stanza -leading his team a 4-3 victory over Rensselaer (RPI) last Friday in the first game of the Brice Alaska Goal Rush in Fairbanks.
RPI, of the Eastern College Athletics Conference (ECAC) and Albany, New York, struggled to stay out of the penalty box. The Engineers were called for six penalties between the halfway mark of the second and third periods. Despite a short-handed goal a little over five minutes into the third, the Engineers’ infractions would soon catch up to them. Ege scored his second-career goal with the Seawolves — tying the game at three on the man-advantage. A few shifts later, Ege put another puck in the net, a laser-of-a-shot past RPI goalie Jason Kasdorf. The lead would hold up for the rest of the game.
Seawolves clobber Yellow Jackets with six goals
The Seawolves returned to action on Saturday and defeated American International College 6-2 in their second game of the Brice Alaska Goal Rush in Fairbanks. Forwards Blake Tatchell and Tad Kozun scored two goals each for the Seawolves, who are now 3-1 as they begin their Western Collegiate Hockey Association schedule this coming weekend. Despite winning both games in Fairbanks, the Alaska Nanooks were named winners of the 2015 BAGR due to goal-differential, as the Nanooks beat the Yellow Jackets by 4 goals Friday and the Engineers by 2 Saturday.
