UAA and Northern Michigan kept their streaks alive Saturday night at Sullivan Arena, where Northern Michigan scored four third-period goals to rally past the Seawolves 4-1 in a Western Collegiate Hockey Association game.
It was the sixth win in a row for Northern Michigan and the sixth loss in a row for the Seawolves.
The Wildcats (13-10-0 overall, 12-4-0 WCHA) scored three times in less than two minutes midway through the third period to complete an undefeated run through Alaska. They swept a two-game series in Anchorage this weekend and a two-game series with UAF last weekend in Fairbanks.
Northern Michigan sits in second place in the WCHA. The Seawolves (2-19-1, 1-14-1) are in last place.
UAA led for much of the game after grabbing a 1-0 lead in the first period. Andrew Lane, a freshman defenseman from Howell, Michigan, scored the first goal of his career on assists from Trey deGraaf and Nicolas Erb-Ekholm.
The Seawolves kept the lead until Northern Michigan reeled off three goals in a span of 77 seconds midway through the third period. The Wildcats added an empty-net goal with two minutes left.
Northern Michigan outshot UAA 31-18. Neither team managed to score on the power play — the Wildcats were 0 of 3, and the Seawolves were 0 of 1.
Kris Carlson made 26 saves for UAA, which heads south this week for a series at Alabama Huntsville.
