#10 Pipers take over MIAC lead with win over #7 Gusties

Gustavus scored first on their home ice, as Patrick Dynan took the rebound off of a Ross Ring-Jarvi shot and put it in the net at 13:30 in the first period.

The score remained 1-0 in favor of the hosts until 6:10 in the third when Spencer Anderson (Jr., Chicago, Ill. ) knotted the score at 1-1. Brian Arrigoni (So., Saint Paul, Minn. ) and Kyle Kurr (Sr., Elk River, Minn.) were credited with the assists.

As Arrigoni came out of the penalty box at the 10-minute mark of the half, the Pipers entered the Gustavus zone. He and Jared Hummel (Jr., Eagan, Minn.) combined for the assists on a Brett Burgau (Jr., New Ulm, Minn.) goal that put the Pipers up 2-1 at 10:31 in the third.

The Gusties pulled their goalie with 50 seconds remaining in the game, and called a timeout with 35 seconds remaining in the game, but it was to no avail. Kelly Plude (Jr., Elk River, Minn.) scored the empty-netter at 19:34, assisted by Chris Berenguer (Jr., Eden Prairie, Minn.) and Kurr.

Hamline is now 15-4-3, 10-2-1 MIAC  with the conference win while Gustavus is 15-5-2, 9-2-2 MIAC. The teams will come to Saint Paul tomorrow, Saturday, February 13, for a 7:15 p.m. game on Hamline’s home ice at Drake Arena.
