Mavericks sweep Huskies

• MINNESOTA STATE MANKATO 5, ST. CLOUD STATE 3: Jason Wiley and Andrew Sackrison each recorded a goal and an assist as the Mavericks completed a weekend sweep of the Huskies on Saturday in St. Cloud, Minn. The Huskies (11-12-3, 6-10-2 WCHA) took a 2-0 lead on a pair of special-teams goals in the first 12 minutes. On a shorthanded odd-man rush, John Swanson blasted a slapshot short side at 7:58. Four minutes later, Ryan Lasch tucked a power-play wrister from the left edge of the crease past Mavericks goalie Mike Zacharias. But Wiley put the Mavericks on the board 47 seconds later when his shot from the slot deflected under Huskies goalie Dan Dunn. Kael Mouillierat scored on an odd-man break 90 seconds into the second period, and the Mavericks (11-10-4, 5-9-4) went ahead with Sackrison's power-play blast from the right circle at 5:51.
