ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The 15th ranked Denver Pioneers scored four first period goals to lead a 6-3 win over UAA on Saturday night and a series sweep in WCHA play. The loss drops the Seawolves to 3-16-1 in conference action.
Ty Loney scored twice for Denver, the third and fifth goals as Denver built a 5-0 lead early in the second period.

The rally went unanswered in the third, however.
The Seawolves remain last in the 12-team WCHA. The sweep boosts Denver all the way into sole possession of third place at 10-5-3 in league play.
