Dordt College Blades Hockey vs. 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.
