2012 College Hockey scores: Buckeyes pick up the weekend sweep

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Ohio State Buckeyes hockey team swept the Northern Michigan Wildcats this past weekend to move to 4-3-3 on the season.

Ohio State Buckeyes hockey swept the Northern Michigan Wildcats in a two-game set last weekend as a part of a full slate of college hockey action.

In Friday's matchup, the Buckeyes shutout Northern Michigan, 2-0. Travis Statchuk scored the first Ohio State goal 8:56 into the first period, and Max McCormick scored late in the third period to put the game away. Goaltender Brady Hjelle stopped 20 shots to record the shutout.

Saturday's victory was a bit more difficult for the Buckeyes, as Northern Michigan scored first and led, 1-0, after one period of play. The Buckeyes answered with two goals in the second period from Riley Simpson and Ryan Dzingel, but the Wildcats tied it up a few minutes later. In the third period, however, it was all Buckeyes. Alex Szczechura scored less than two minutes into the period and Chris Crane put the game away late to give Ohio State the 4-2 victory.

The two wins moved the Buckeyes' record to 4-3-3 on the season. They travel to Lake Superior for a two-game set next weekend.
