UW Hockey Club Loses Two Games
The University of Wyoming hockey club dropped a pair of games last weekend against Border War rival Colorado State University.
The Cowboys yielded three power-play goals in a 5-3 setback Friday night in Fort Collins, Colo., then squandered a 2-1, third-period lead in a 4-3 loss Saturday night at the Laramie Community Ice and Events Center.
Matt Schulz (Casper) added to his early-season scoring surge in the first of two series' between UW and CSU (6-2). The freshman center netted two more goals and assisted on another goal, giving him a team-leading nine points through four games.
Billy Ross (Boulder, Colo.) scored a goal in each game for the Cowboys, and Ryan Bourcier (Warren, Mich.) and Seth Farrell (Longmont, Colo.) also had goals. Craig Luplow (Banner), Luke Walker (Jackson) and Tyler Yorke (Calgary, Alberta) contributed assists for UW.
The Cowboys and Rams meet again for two games in January.
UW (1-3) plays its next four games away from home, beginning with a Saturday faceoff against the University of Colorado. The Cowboys' trip to Boulder will be followed by their annual visit to the Clash in the Corn tournament, Nov. 4-6 at Sioux Center, Iowa.
