ADRIAN, Mich. – The men's hockey team remained undefeated in Midwest Collegiate Hockey Association play with a 3-1 win over visiting Marian College (7-9-1, 6-6), Saturday afternoon at Arrington Ice Arena.
The 10-0-2 MCHA Bulldogs were led by Shawn Courtney and Josh Ranalli. They had a couple of helpers each and undefeated goaltender James Hamby turned aside 27 shots to improve the team's overall record to 14-1-2.
Hamby (9-0-1) tops all Division III goaltenders in winning percentage and is only one of two undefeated.
After a scoreless first period, Kevin Balas scored his fifth of the season shorthanded with just 63 seconds left in the second period.
Less than three minutes later, Zach Graham would add some insurance with his ninth of the year and put last year's MCHA Player of the Year in the scoring lead for the Bulldogs with 26 points.
The Sabres would cut the deficit to 3-1 with about eight minutes left, but could not get any closer.
Adrian outshot Marian, 29-28.
The team travels to Milwaukee, Wisconsin for a pair of road games against the Milwaukee School of Engineering next weekend. The Friday start time is 8 p.m. (ET), while the Saturday game begins at 4 p.m. (ET).
