KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Western Michigan defeated the Lakers tonight 3-1 to earn a series split with Lake Superior State.  

The Broncos spent most of the first period in the offensive zone out shooting the Lakers 13-4.    Unfortunately, Lake Superior State goaltender Kevin Murdock was able to turn aside all of the Western Michigan shots.  Despite five penalties in the period, neither team was able to capitalize sending the Broncos and the Lakers to the locker room tied 0-0. 

Western Michigan was able to strike quickly as Mike Leone put the Broncos up 1-0 just 2:48 into the period for his 4th goal of the year.  It didn't take long for the Lakers to answer back as Domenic Monardo notched an even strength goal at 7:25 to tie the game 1-1.  With time ticking down in the second period the Broncos found themselves on a power play, at 18:21 Dane Walters found the back of the net for his 11th goal of the year putting WMU up 2-1 going into the third.

In the third period on a Broncos power play, Dennis Brown notched his first goal of the year extending the WMU lead to 3-1 and sealing the victory.
