Early goal doesn't hold up for UWS

Troy McTavish's game-opening goal at the 3:17 mark of the first period was as good as it got for Wisconsin-Superior in a 5-1 WIAC loss at Wisconsin-Eau Claire on Friday.

The Blugolds tied the game up less than three minutes afterward, then took the lead for good 90 seconds later. The hosts' lead held up despite their taking six consecutive minor penalties over the second and third periods.

Kyle Oleksiuk, Connor Szmul and Simon Sagissor had a goal and assist apiece for UWEC, which had a 33-22 edge in shots on goal.

Landon Pavlisin made 21 saves for UWS before being replaced by Myles Hektor (seven) early in the third period.

The Yellowjackets (3-2, 1-1 WIAC) return home today for a single game vs. tenth-ranked Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
