STARS ARE WINLESS IN FOUR OF LAST FIVE GAMES, REMAIN SECOND IN WESTERN CONFERENCE

 

Dubuque, IOWA - The Lincoln Stars (8-6-2) dropped their second game in a row as they were bested 5-1 by the Dubuque Fighting Saints (10-2-1) at the Mystique Community Ice Center on Saturday Night

After not leading at any point over their last three games, Christian Sarlo drew first blood early for Lincoln with a power-play goal 1:19 into the first period. It was Sarlo’s fifth goal of the year and his team-leading fourth PPG. The Fighting Saints followed his goal up with Dylan Jackson’s game-tying tally (also on the power play) at the 3:00 mark of the opening period.

Both teams headed into the first period intermission tied at one goal apiece after Ryan McInchak stopped Ryan Beck on a penalty shot. Dubuque outshot the Stars 12-5 in the first set of 20 minutes.

The Fighting Saints took the lead 8:35 into the second period thanks to Antonio Venuto’s goal after the forward knocked the puck out of the air past McInchak off of a third-chance opportunity. Ty Jackson scored with under 10 seconds to go in the second frame, doubling Dubuque’s lead. Lincoln found themselves in a two-goal hole after the second period and the Fighting Saints continued to keep their foot on the gas pedal in the third. 

Riese Gaber’s two goals separated by 1:38 in the latter stages of regulation put the game out of reach.

Lincoln was outshot 32-20 in the game and the Stars have lost four out of their last five games. Despite that, they are still second in the Western Conference.
