Ryan McKay posted his second consecutive shutout on Friday.
The Miami sophomore stopped 31 shots en route to blanking St. Cloud State at the Brooks Center in Miami’s 2-0 win on Friday.
Freshman defenseman Matt Joyaux scored his first collegiate goal with 12:52 remaining in the second period.
Sophomore forward Riley Barber sealed it with 11:18 to play in regulation with his ninth goal in 10 games for Miami (6-2-1).
The series finale will be at 8:07 p.m. on Saturday.
ANALYSIS: I didn’t see the game because of my insane schedule with high school football playoffs.
But with McKay recording consecutive shutouts and coach Enrico Blasi’s tendency to ride the hot hand, he may use McKay more than fellow sophomore Jay Williams in the near future.
This is a great win for Miami, which had been cast down the polls after its loss to North Dakota in the first game of that series.
Apologies for the extremely short write-up, but it’s past 6 a.m. and I have a playoff football game to cover in less than seven hours and a state soccer final 90 miles away I need to be at by 7 p.m.
