MSU 2, Anchorage 1

Michael Dorr's goal with 6:09 remaining in the third period gave Minnesota State a 2-1 victory and its first WCHA sweep of the season on Saturday as the Mavericks defeated Alaska Anchorage.

The Mavericks shot a season-low 16 shots goal, one less than Friday night's 3-2 win. Eriah Hayes scored MSU's other goal.

Anchorage outshot MSU 19-16, but Phil Cook stopped 18 shots for his team-leading seventh win of the year.

Hayes gave the Mavericks a 1-0 win with assists from Jean-Paul LaFonataine and Matt Leither at 2:37 of the first period. Anchorage's Matt Bailey tied the game less than a minute later. Zach Palmquist assisted on the goal.

With the win, the Mavericks moved into 10th place in the WCHA standings, one point ahead of Wisconsin (although the Badgers have two games in hand). They will host second-place Minnesota Duluth on Friday and Saturday in Mankato.
