Moe potted a rebound after sophomore Alessio Luciani looked to make a pass into the slot to Moe. It deflected on goal off a Lakers player with the rebound finding the stick of Moe.

Mitens made 15 saves in two periods of work for Lake State before making way for freshman netminder Ethan Langenegger, who stopped all five shots he faced in the third period.

Gray made 20 saves for Adrian in the loss.

Lake State is schedule to host Alabama-Huntsville for a pair of games, beginning next Sunday at 5 p.m. at Taffy Abel Arena.
