SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. — Senior Aaron Davis broke a 1-1 tie in the second period, and Lake Superior State beat Mercyhurst 3-2 in a non-conference game on Friday.
Lake Superior State (2-1) outshot Mercyhurst (0-1) 38-27.
Lake State’s Chris Peterson and Mercyhurst’s Rich Hansen traded goals before Davis’ score.
LSSU took a 3-1 lead on Jeremy Bachusz’s goal 11:17 into the third period. Mercyhurst’s T.J. Kemp cut the lead to one with 3:03 left, but a too-many-men-on-the-ice penalty late slimmed Mercyhurst’s chances for an equalizer.
