February 4, 2012
NORTHFIELD, Minn. - St. Olaf defeated Augsburg College 4-3 to complete a two-game MIAC men's hockey sweep on Saturday night at Northfield Ice Arena.
Peter Rohn and Ross Trousdale each collected a goal and two assists for the Oles, who kept pace in the race for a MIAC playoffs berth with the sweep.
With the game tied 2-2 late in the second, the Oles' Derek Grogan found the net on feeds from Trousdale and Rohn to give St. Olaf a 3-2 adavantage with 3:11 left in the period. Dylan Porter then opened the third with an even-strength score that gave the Oles a two-goal cushion.
Augsburg came within one on J.P. Perpich's second goal of the year at the 7:13 mark. But the Oles held on, with the help of Ben Leis' 16 saves in the period. Leis finished with 26 for the night and improved to 7-5-4.
