By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Alaska Nanooks were on the other side of a weekend sweep when they lost to the Northern Michigan Wildcats.
They were defeated 2-1 in overtime on Friday night by the top team in the WCHA before falling 4-1 on Saturday.
In that second game, Northern Michigan scored one goal in both the first and second periods.
The Nooks were then able to make it a one point game early in the final frame before NMU added a third goal with about a minute and a half left in the game, and an Empty Netter with 18 seconds left.
Kyle Marino scored the one goal for the Nooks while Troy Van Tetering provided the assist.
The loss drops the Nooks down to 11-17-2 overall this year and 9-14-1-1 in WCHA play.
They hold seventh place in the conference, just one point ahead of Ferris State and one behind Alabama Huntsville.
They will have the opportunity to move up in those standings next weekend when they play on the road for the last time in the Regular season.
They will play Bemidji State in a special series this Thursday and Friday in Minnesota.
They will return to the Carlson Center to close out the regular season and celebrate the governor's cup against the UAA Seawolves on the 23rd and the 24th.
