Mavericks 8, Seawolves 2 (not a typo)

Jerad Stewart scored four goals and assisted on another as Minnesota State trounced Alaska-Anchorage 8-2 Friday night at Sullivan Arena. It was the first collegiate hat trick for Stewart, a senior forward, and the Mavericks' first four-goal game since Shane Joseph had that many in March of 2003. It's also just the second four-goal game by a Maverick in the team's WCHA era.

The Mavericks, who had been having trouble scoring goals recently, won on the road for the first time this season and hit the eight-goal mark for the first time since February of 2004.

Kurt Davis had a goal and an assist, and Rylan Galiardi had two assists. Other goal scorers included Eriah Hayes, Tyler Pitlick and Jason Wiley. The Mavericks outshot the Seawolves 39-15 and goalie Austin Lee got the win with 13 saves.

Minnesota State scored four goals in the first period and the third period.

The win took MSU (4-6-1, 2-6-1 in WCHA) out of the WCHA basement and one point ahead of Anchorage and Michigan Tech, which is idle this weekend.

Junior forward Andrew Sackrison was injured in the first period and was taken to an Anchorage hospital, according to the radio broadcast.
