College Hockey:
Lakers Subdue Warriors

— Ninth-ranked Mercyhurst broke open a close game with three third-period goals to subdue Wayne State 4-0 Saturday and sweep the weekend series. The Lakers improved their overall record to 20-7-1 and their Great Lakes Women’s Hockey Association mark to 14-2-1. Wayne State dropped to 3-21-2.

Mercyhurst got a first-period power-play goal from junior defender Randi Pilger, but could not solve Wayne State goalie Kelly Zamora again until the final period.

Pilger scored her second of the game and sixth of the season at 3:23 and sophomore forward Lindsay Barch concluded the scoring with her 11th and 12th of the season at 10:58 and 13:33, respectively.

The Lakers are now 12-0-0 all-time against the Warriors.

Freshman goalie Desi Clark got the win between the pipes for Mercyhurst while Zamora, a converted forward, took the loss for WSU despite stopping 44 of 48 shots.
