Mavs 5, Huskies 2

Minnesota State opened up a five-goal lead before a home crowd and went on to defeat Michigan Tech 5-2 Friday night.

Zach Harrison had a four-point night (one goal, three assists), Geoff Irwin had two goals (his first since Oct. 16) and an assist and Ben Youds had three assists (giving him a team-high 10 on the year). Irwin, Mike Louwerse and Jerad Stewart scored power-play goals, and Austin Lee, besides his 27 saves, had an assist.

But despite all of those individual stats, the Mavericks were mostly pleased with the way they closed the game. They controlled play in the third period, outshooting Tech 14-4 (41-29 for the game) and giving the Huskies nary a chance over the final 20 minutes.

"We finished that game," Harrison said. "It's the first game all year we really finished."

Hopefully we can convert on our chances two games in a row and not end up like last weekend at UAA.
