APPLETON, Wis. -- Lawrence University gave up three first-period goals Friday and that was too much to overcome in a 5-1 Northern Collegiate Hockey Association loss to Lake Forest College at the Appleton Ice Center.
The Vikings had the better of the play for the first 10 minutes of the game, but Lake Forest scored three goals in a span of 6:36 later in the period to pull out to the lead.
The Foresters added a pair of power-play goals in the second from David Cohen to help seal the win. The Foresters finished 2-for-5 on the power play.
Lawrence got on the board with a power-play goal of its own when Evan Ketner scored at 8:11 of the third with assists from Curtis Weyerhaeuser and Tyler Jensen. The Vikings went 1-for-6 on the power play.
Boyd DiClemente finished with 18 saves over the first two periods to get the win for Lake Forest. Nick Wiencek made 10 saves and allowed one goal in the third. The Vikings posted a 29-27 edge in shots.
The teams wrap up the two-game series Saturday night in Lake Forest, Ill.
