ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Alaska Anchorage scored twice in 13 seconds to erase a one-goal deficit and hung on to defeat Minnesota State 3-1 Saturday night, gaining a split of the two-game Western Collegiate Hockey Association series.

After a scoreless first period, Minnesota State (14-15-1, 10-13-1 WCHA) took the lead when Dana Sorenson scored at 8:12 off an errant pass.

Alaska Anchorage (9-14-5, 8-12-4 WCHA) roared back with three straight goals.

Mustang goalie Jason Jensen kick-saved a shot by Dallas Steward but Vladimir Novak buried the rebound at 12:15. Thirteen seconds later, Eric Lawson fired in a goal from the blue line on an assist from Steward.

Mike Scott took a deflection off a defenseman and scored at 19:47 of the second period to give the Seawolves a 3-1 lead.

Novak and Scott returned from serving one-game suspensions for fighting Feb. 2 at Wisconsin.

Jensen stopped 21 shots for the Mavericks. Chris King had 20 saves for Alaska Anchorage.

The Mavericks defeated Alaska Anchorage 5-4 in overtime Friday.
