Isaiah Saville of Anchorage is only a sophomore in college yet already he’s among the goaltender giants from Alaska.

The University of Nebraska-Omaha standout moved into the top 10 for The Last Frontier in career wins after racking up back-to-back victories against Colorado College.

Saville turned aside 26 shots in each game and allowed only three goals in the series, improving his season record to 11-6-1.

His 11 wins are a career best and moved his career record to 21-17-5.

Saville, of West High fame, is riding a red-hot streak with an 8-3 record over his last 11 games.

With two weekend wins, he moved past Anchorage’s Chris King for tenth place on the Alaska all-time wins list for D1 goalies.

King posted 20 wins for UAA between 2000 and 2004.

Saville needs 13 more wins to catch Anchorage’s James Konte, who posted 34 wins at Princeton between 1992 to 1996.

In eighth place with 42 wins are Fairbanks’ Wylie Rogers (UAF) and Anchorage’s Andrew Shortridge (Quinnipiac).

The Alaska career wins leaders are Anchorage’s Jordan Pearce (Notre Dame) and Anchorage’s Eric Schierhorn (Minnesota) with 59.

Saville this season has posted career bests in winning percentage (.639), goals-against average (2.52) and save percentage (.921).

The Alaska netminder is a big reason why Omaha is 13-6-1 and ranked 10th in the country.
