Isaiah Saville of Anchorage made 37 saves and stopped all 15 shots he faced on the power play to backstop the University of Nebraska Omaha’s 2-1 upset win at 12th-ranked Ohio State.

The freshman goaltender was perfect for the final 29 minutes, turning aside all 15 shots and rebounding nicely after Ohio State had tied the game at 1-1 midway through the second period.

Saville, of West High fame, has collected wins in two of his first three NCAA starts.

He has a .938 save percentage and 1.68 goals against average.

Saville has allowed only one even-strength goal in 179 minutes in net.
