FSU's Bomersback Out 2 Months
CHN Staff Report
BIG RAPIDS, Mich. Ferris State senior forward Mark Bomersback, the Bulldogs' top returning point getter, will be sidelined for at least two months with a broken leg suffered in the third period of Friday's loss to Union.
Bomersback, the 24-year old native of Rochester, Alberta, had a career-high 16 goals and 31 points in 39 games last season. At 5-foot-10, the assistant captain has 31 goals in 115 games over three season with the Bulldogs. He did not have a point in Friday's game, a 2-0 loss to Union.
Ferris State is 0-2 on the season, having lost to Union on Saturday also. The Bulldogs have two more non-league games with Mercyhurst this weekend, then play nothing but league games until after Christmas.
After the weekend, Ferris State coach Bob Daniels was optimisic on his offense, but may have to temper that now.
"The positive is that we might have more scoring than what we thought," said Daniels. "We have the pieces there, we just have to work on putting them together. With hard work, we can be a good team.
"The negative was our discipline. We have to correct the misconducts we had. They hurt our chances."
Union won 6-5 on Saturday, partially because of scoring three goals in less than a two-minute span of the second period, on a 5-minute major power play.
