Men’s ACHA Division II hockey earned a 5-0 shutout victory over Concordia University (Wisc.) in the season opener Friday night at the Centene Community Ice Center in Maryland Heights, Missouri.
Declan Carter scored the first goal for the Lions at 10:51 off a rebound from an Adam Rischbieter shot set up by Chase McClellan. Lindenwood made it 2-0 when Jacob Behnen connected on a stretch pass back to Sean McMahon with 68-seconds remaining in the first.
Carter scored his second goal of the game in the second period off a great pass from Jack Radley and Josh Linn for a 3-0 Lions advantage, and then Radley made it 4-0 on a one-timer set up by RJ Hart and Steve Avalone with 14:05 remaining in the third. The final goal of the night came off a spectacular feed from McClellan to Sean Wager. Linn earned the second assist on the play.
Ethan Paulin-Hatch was a rock in goal for Lindenwood, earning the win by stopping all 30 shot he faced.
