SAINT PETER, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s hockey team hosted No. 11 UW-Superior in its final non-conference game of the season Saturday and skated to a 3-3 tie. With the result the Gusties move to 7-6-2 while the Yellowjackets are now 12-2-2.

“Overall pleased with our effort tonight against a really good UW-Superior team,” said Head Coach Brett Petersen. “I also thought our first-year goalie, Justin Damon, stepped in and played well.”

Both teams played equal in the first, with neither team getting anything going in the early going as Justin Damon (Fy., St. Michael) and the Yellowjacket goalkeeper held strong. Reid Brown (Sr., Superior, Colo.) was able to break the ice, scoring for the second consecutive night with assists going to Tyler Rock (Jr., Savage) and Tyler Ebner (So., La Crosse, Wis.). The Yellowjackets would get called for a penalty with time winding down in the period and gave Gustavus a power play to start the second period.

The Gusties couldn’t muster much with their power play opportunity to begin the second frame and UW-Superior used the penalty kill as momentum for the rest of the period. In the second the Yellowjackets would outshoot the Gusties 14-3, scoring goals at the 10:50 and 14:16 marks to hold a 2-1 lead heading into the final period.

The Gusties would take advantage of a Yellowjacket penalty in the early going of the third period, with Connor Clemons (So., Savage) netting the equalizer at the 7:42 mark, with assists going to Caleb Anderson (Jr., Sioux Falls, S.D.) and Logan Norman (Jr., Luverne). UW-Superior however, would respond, scoring at the 9:27 mark to retake the lead at 3-2. Gustavus would answer, as Anderson would tally his team-best eighth goal of the season, assisted by Clemons and Jared Bromberg (Sr., Rochester) to even things once again. The teams would then play scoreless the rest of regulation and overtime as the Gusties and Yellowjackets skated to a 3-3 tie.

Damon make 27 saves in net in the contest, while allowing three goals.

The Gusties are next in action on Friday when they travel to St. Thomas for a 7:30 p.m. contest.
