Sophomore Mike Mantua turned in a night to remember, as he became the first goaltender in WMU history to score a goal. Mantua chased down a loose puck in the slot, and with the FSU net empty in favor of an extra attacker, flicked a shot the length of the ice into the Bulldog goal at the 19:08 mark of the third period. Mantua also stopped a penalty shot attempt in the second period and a breakaway in the third period. He was named Perani Cup No. 1 Star of the Game.
WMU scored first at 9:03 of the first period on freshman Vince Bellissimo's fifth goal of the season. Ferris State evened the game on a power play tally from Derek Nesbitt just five minutes, 4 seconds into the second period.
WMU then scored three unanswered goals, as Jeff Campbell (5) and freshman Brent Walton (5) added insurance goals, which was followed by Mantua's tally.
The Broncos host Niagara next Saturday (Nov. 23) in Kalamazoo.
NOTES: WMU recorded its 19th win against a nationally-ranked team at Lawson since the 1995-96 season ... FSU fell to 0-9-0 lifetime against WMU in the month of November.
