Michigan hockey falls to Miami (Ohio), 4-3

Gregory Shamus

The Wolverines gave up three goals to the Miami RedHawks in the third period on Saturday night in a frustrating loss.

Despite taking a one-goal advantage into the third period, the Michigan Wolverines came up just short against the Miami RedHawks on Saturday night at Yost Ice Arena, 4-3.

After Travis Lynch tied the game at one apiece late in the first, Michigan claimed an early 2-1 lead in the second period with Alex Guptill's fourth goal of the season. Unfortunately for the Wolverines, goaltender Jared Rutledge was not able to hold his own over the final 20 minutes, saving just seven of the 10 third-period shots he faced to let the RedHawks seize control.

A late goal from Michigan's Lindsay Sparks helped cut the deficit, but the Wolverines still could not find a way to beat Miami goalie Jay Williams over the game's final two minutes of action. Victorious on Friday night in the first game of the brief series, 4-2, the Wolverines will now prepare to face Northern Michigan this upcoming weekend on the road in Marquette.
