Matadors sweep Cal State Fullerton
Jan 13, 2013 6:11 PM
Anaheim, Calif.- Cal State Northridge earned their first road win and winning streak in Division 2 with a 4-3 victory over Cal State Fullerton.
The Matadors got on the board first at 14:43 of the first period with a deflection goal from Freshman Ryan Kunisaki. Fullerton answered back at 8:33 with a shorthanded goal by Payne Sauer.
At 16:55 of the second the Matadors scored a shorthanded goal of their own when Freshman Patrick Nelson slid the puck through the five hole of Alex Miller on a breakaway. At 10:27 Freshman Ellis Bourgoujian found a loose puck in the slot and fired it home to extend the lead to 3-1.
Fullerton narrowed the lead at 8:05 of the third period on a goal from Tyler Atkins. But Northridge struck right back 47 seconds later on a deflection goal from Junior Brian Carcerano. Adam Brusig capitalized on a Matador turnover at 3:51 to make things a little more interesting. Brusig then hurt his team's chances to tie the score by taunting the Matador bench and earning an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. The Matadors couldn't score on the power play. The Titans pulled Miller but weren't able to tie it up.
Sophomore Michael Standke earned the victory for Northridge. The Matadors swept the two game season series with the Titans with the victory.
Next weekend the Matadors will head back home to play a two game series with fellow Valley Ice Center tenant UCLA. Both games will begin at 8:30 PM.
