Ostrow Leads Pioneers To 3-2 Win Over Seawolves

DENVER (AP) — Kyle Ostrow scored two goals and Beau Bennett netted the game-winner in the third period as fourth-ranked Denver beat Alaska-Anchorage 3-2 on Friday in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.

Bennett’s goal at 9:22 of the final period broke a 2-2 tie and moved the Pioneers (15-5-5, 11-3-3) into sole possession of first place in the WCHA. Denver has 25 points and holds a one-point lead in the standings over Minnesota-Duluth and North Dakota, which lost 8-4 to Nebraska-Omaha.
