UW Hockey Club Falls to Colorado
The University of Wyoming hockey club, skating outside the Cowboy State for the first time this season, lost to the University of Colorado 8-4 Saturday night.
The Buffaloes (2-0) scored four goals in the first period to seize control against the Cowboys in the first of three scheduled meetings this season between the American Collegiate Hockey Association Pacific Region rivals.
Billy Ross (Superior, Colo.) scored two goals and had one assist for UW, which was coming off back-to-back wins over Montana State University in Gillette and Casper to open the 2009-10 campaign.
Ryan Allred (Laramie) and Levi Wood (Cheyenne) also scored goals against the Buffs. Club president Elliott Bauder (Douglas) added two assists, and Erik Blomberg (Parker, Colo.), Willy Miller (Arvada, Colo.) and T.J. Peters (Jackson) each recorded an assist.
The Cowboys make their season debut on home ice this weekend against the U.S. Air Force Academy club squad. Faceoffs are scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Friday at the Laramie Community Ice Arena and 7 p.m. Saturday at the Taco John's Events Center in Cheyenne.
