Dordt College Blades Hockey vs. Clash in the Corn: Iowa State
November 17, 2011
(Sioux Center, Iowa) Four first period goals by Iowa State was the undoing of the Dordt Blades this evening (November 17, 2011) as they fell 5-1 to the Cyclones in Dordt's first game in the Clash in the Corn.
The 'Clones scored quickly as an unassisted Mason Uvodich tally made it a 1-0 hockey game just 1 minute and 41 seconds into the first period. With 7:20 to play a Nick Appel marker on an assist from Kean Ludvicek made it 2-0 and 61 seconds later the Cyclones struck again with Jordan Kanter picking up a goal on assist from Uvodich and Metli to make it 3-0 for the visitors. Ludvicek picked up a goal of his own with 2:35 to play in the first period with Uvodich getting his second helper to make it 4-0 at the end of the first.
A Nic Enerson goal for the Blades at 14:42 spoiled the Cyclones shut-out bid and cut the Iowa State lead down to three but a Justin Metli goal with 6:42 remaining gave the Cyclones their 4 goal cushion back and the teams went to the locker room with the Cyclones leading 5-1 and that proved to be the final score as neither team found the net in the final period.
Riley Braun had 47 saves for the Blades in a losing effort and Scott Ismond picked up the win with 26 saves for the Cyclones.
All the goals tonight were even strength goals as Dordt College was 0-1 with the man advantage and the Blades successfully killed off all 3 of the Cyclone power plays.
