Motte, Ferris St. blanks Colgate

  CJ Motte has been in goal for five of Ferris State's six shutouts this season.

CINCINNATI -- Gerald Mayhew scored a power-play goal midway through the first period, and C.J. Motte made it stand up by turning away 35 shots Friday, leading Ferris State to a 1-0 victory against Colgate in the NCAA tournament regional semifinals.

The second-seeded Bulldogs (29-10-3) advanced to the Midwest Regional final by pulling off their sixth shutout of the season, their fifth with Motte in goal.

Colgate (20-14-5) had more shots on goal, but couldn't get one past Motte, the Bulldogs' junior goaltender, who made two impressive stops during a power play in the third period.

He also made a glove save on Spiro Goulakos' slap shot with 1:37 to go. Colgate's Tyson Spink was called for cross-checking with 57.9 seconds left, allowing Ferris State to finish it off on a power play.
