Liberty University's ACHA Division II men's hockey team earned the maximum amount of bonus points toward its Southeast Region ranking with an 8-1 and 7-0 sweep at Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Hockey (MACH) South Conference rival University of Maryland on Friday and Saturday at the Laurel Gardens Ice House in West Laurel, Md.  

The Flames (25-3-1), which remained at No. 2 in last week's Southeast Region rankings, dominated the Terrapins (3-13-3), outshooting them by a 50-11 margin in the first game and 46-21 in the rematch.

Junior forward Blake Flanders and sophomore forward Timothy Doe both scored twice in the opener, when freshmen forwards Josh Wagner and Luke McFarlane and graduate forward Jerrell Campbell and defenseman Drew Crilly each added one goal.

In Saturday's finale, Campbell, Flanders, and sophomore forward Peyton Nash each netted two scores and McFarlane added one.

Sophomore goalies Dakota Cyhaniuk made 10 saves in the first game and 21 in the second when he recorded his seventh shutout, improving to 15-0 and lowering his goals-against average to 1.30 while raising his save percentage to 95.2.

The Flames will be back in action this weekend when they host Temple on Saturday at 10 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. in their regular-season-ending series at the LaHaye Ice Center.
