Zach Larson scored Minnesota Crookston's lone goal against the University of Mary in a 9-1 loss Sunday afternoon.

The Minnesota Crookston hockey team was swept by the University of Mary, the top-ranked team in the ACHA Division II, with a 9-1 loss to the Marauders Sunday afternoon at the Crookston Sports Center.

The Golden Eagles (2-5) lost their fourth straight game.

UMary (23-1-2-1) scored the game's first seven goals. They scored three goals in the first period, four in the second and two in the third, and took 52 shots on goal. Amazingly for a nine-goal effort, only one Marauder — Alexander Horner — scored two goals, although a number had multiple assists.

Minnesota Crookston's lone goal was scored by freshman forward Zach Larson, late in the second period off an assist from freshman forward Tristan Morneault.

UP NEXT: UMC is on the road Feb. 12-13 to take on Williston State College. The Tetons swept the Golden Eagles in Crookston Jan. 29-30, by scores of 3-1 and 7-3.
