APPLETON, Wis. -- Lawrence University scored four times in the third period Saturday to power to a 5-2 Northern Collegiate Hockey Association win over Finlandia University at the Appleton Ice Center.
Goaltender Alex Mosquera picked up the win as he made 22 saves for Lawrence (2-5-1, 2-3-1 NCHA). Santeri Seppinen stopped 25 shots for Finlandia (0-6-1, 0-5-1) and took the loss.
A pair of Vikings got their first collegiate goals, and James Scott was the first as he scored just 2:06 into the second period off assists from Curtis Weyerhaeuser and Chase Wiedemann for a 1-0 lead. The Lions countered with a goal in the final minute of the period to send the game to the third tied 1-1.
The Vikings broke that tie after Owen Pietila got sent off for tripping at the 6:17 mark. Galaguzov scored on the power play with a shot from the face-off circle at the 7:35 mark as Daniel Gysi and Vincent Dekumbis picked up assists.
Pietila took a slashing penalty as that goal was being scored, and Lawrence went back on the power play. Drinkard converted on the man-advantage less than a minute later as he scored off assists by Dekumbis and Evan Ketner at 13:02 for a 4-1 lead.
Lawrence finished 2-for-4 on the power play, and Finlandia was 1-for-6.
The Lions got a power-play goal from Connor Hannon at 14:12 but that momentum didn't last long.
Lawrence answered with Cooper's first collegiate goal just 13 seconds later off an assist by Ketner to complete the scoring.
Lawrence posted a 30-24 edge in shots.
