The UAA hockey team squandered a two-goal lead while skating to its second straight draw Friday night but earned two points in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association standings by winning the shootout.
The game ended in a 4-4 tie, but freshman Brayden Camrud scored for the Seawolves in the second round of the shootout at Alabama Huntsville’s Von Braun Arena.
The Seawolves are 1-4-2 overall and 1-1-1 in the WCHA. After opening the season with three straight losses, they are 1-1-2 in their last four games.
Victory slipped away from the Seawolves in the third period, when Huntsville scored twice to erase a two-goal UAA lead. The teams skated through a scoreless 5-on-5 overtime period and a scoreless 3-on-3 overtime period to set up the shootout.
Eight players contributed points for UAA, including Drake Glover, a junior from Anchorage who tallied his first points of the season with a goal and an assist.
Huntsville (0-8-1 overall, 0-4-1 WCHA) rocketed to a 1-0 lead with a goal 34 seconds into the game. Glover tied the game midway through the period.
Second-period goals from sophomores Tanner Schachle and Jared Nash and freshman Taylor Lantz gave UAA a 4-2 lead, but the Seawolves were held scoreless in the third period.
The Chargers scored the game-tying goal with about eight minutes left while skating with a 5-on-3 man advantage. They were 1 of 5 on the power play and UAA was 0 of 1.
Huntsville outshot UAA 37-32, including 14-10 in the third period. Sophomore goaltender Kristian Stead stopped 33 shots for the Seawolves, and Huntsville goalie Mark Sinclair made 28 saves.
The teams play again Saturday in Huntsville.
