By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Alaska Nanooks are still in search of their first victory of the season after they were swept by the nationally ranked St. Cloud State Huskies this past weekend.
Starting in Game One, the Nanooks got on the board first with a goal from Kyle Marino, but then surrendered a goal to the Huskies.
St. Cloud then grabbed a 3-1 lead in the second scoring two on the Nooks.
James LeDouce scored to cut the deficit down to one, but the third ranked Huskies were able to lock down on defense to grab the 3-2 victory.
Then in Game Two, the Nanooks started off strong with a goal in the first off of Brennan Blaszczak.
But the Huskies answered quickly to tie it up.
In the second, Ryker Leer scored to make it 2-1, but St. Cloud scored five unanswered after that to win the match 6-2.
Alaska drops to Oh and four, and now prepare for a series against the nationally competitive Denver Pioneers.
Head Coach Erik Largen spoke about the team's loss to the Huskies.
"That was a tough one to swallow I think, the last 10 minutes it fell apart there and unraveled. You know the guys played pretty well there for the first 40 minutes of that hockey game. They get a couple goals there like right after we get our second goal a little bit deflating in the third, but still had a chance to come back get a power play but couldn't convert. You know they make it 4-2, and scored a couple more. Got to improve, got to get better," said Largen.
