By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Alaska Nanooks suffered a sweep this weekend at the hands of the Michigan Tech Huskies.
Friday's game saw the Nooks drop a three goal lead to lose 5-4 in Overtime.
Saturday Night's game wasn't nearly as dramatic as the Huskies took home a 5-1 win.
The Huskies were able to find the back of the net twice in the first period and three times in the second.
The Nooks couldn't stop Jake Jackson who was able to score twice for the Huskies.
They also couldn't get through Huskies Goaltender and former Fairbanks Ice Dog Patrick "Packy" Munson, who earned 34 saves to secure the win for his team.
The Lone goal for the Nanooks was scored by Hometown team Captain Justin Woods.
This goal sent the Teddy Bears flying onto the Ice for the annual Teddy Bear Toss.
All of those stuffed animals were donated to Santa's Helpers, who will be distributing them to interior families through the holiday season.
Chad Staley and Nikolas Koberstein provided the assists for Woods' goal.
Anton Martinsson started the game in goal for the Nooks but was eventually taken out after he allowed four goals in 25 minutes.
Niko Dellamaggiore took over in the crease and allowed one goal in the last 35 minutes of play.
The loss brings the Nooks down to 4-10-2 overall and 2-7-1-1 in conference play.
They are tied for 8th in the WCHA with 8 conference points.
That was the last home game of the year for the Nanooks, who won't return to the Carlson Center until they host Alamaba Huntsville on January 5th 2018.
They will be in action this weekend in Sault Ste Marie Michigan against Lake Superior State University.
They will then take on the UAA Seawolves down in anchorage before going on Christmas Break.
