Alaska Anchorage tops St. Cloud State

ANCHORAGE The University of Alaska Anchorage rode a 3-goal first period to double up St. Cloud St. 6-3 in Western Collegiate Hockey Association action Saturday night. The win was the Seawolves' first against the Huskies in seven years.

Anchorage (8-9-3, 5-8-3 WCHA) came back twice from one-goal deficits in the first period.

Seawolf Dallas Steward made it 1-1 at 6:01 after Huskie Justin Fletcher had scored 2:24 into the game. St. Cloud left wing Justin Fletcher poked in a puck in the crease to give the Huskies a 2-1 lead before Seawolf Brett Arcand-Kootenay answered 33 seconds later.

The Seawolves picked it back up again in the second period after the Huskies (13-8-3, 9-6-3 WCHA) replaced starting goalie Tim Boron with Adam Coole. Exactly one minute in, Seawolf Chad Anderson made it 4-2.

Two goals from UAA's Curtis Glencross and one from St. Cloud's Fletcher would round out the scoring.

The Seawolves were 2-5 on the power play while St. Cloud was 2-8.

UAA goalie Kevin Reiter improved his record to 3-5-1 with 32 saves. Boron took the loss for St. Cloud with six saves. Coole knocked away 13 in two periods of action.

The victory was UAA's first in their last 21 meetings with St. Cloud, dating back to a 5-3 win Feb. 8, 1997.
