UW Hockey Club Posts 1-2 Record
January 19, 2011 — The University of Wyoming hockey club returned from a six-week winter break last weekend, losing two of three games on a Midwestern road trip.
Playing for the first time since a Dec. 3 shootout loss against the University of Colorado, the Cowboys dropped a 7-3 decision at Iowa State, defeated Creighton 5-0 and suffered a 4-2 setback to Nebraska.
Matt Schulz (Casper) and Taylor Freeman (Parker, Colo.) both scored three goals apiece to lead UW's offensive charge. Schulz, a first-year player who has emerged as one of the top goal scorers in Division III of the American Collegiate Hockey Association, pushed his team-leading total to 26 in 16 games.
T.J. Peters (Jackson), Mitch Nelson (Sheridan), Dustin Galbreath (Greenwich, Conn.) and Billy Ross (Superior, Colo.) also netted goals for the Cowboys on the weekend road swing. Galbreath also had two assists.
UW (6-9-1) plays a home-and-home series against Border War rival Colorado State this weekend. The teams meet at 8 p.m. Friday at the Laramie Ice and Events Center and at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at EPIC Ice Arena in Fort Collins.
The Rams (11-7) swept the teams' first series in October, winning 5-3 and 4-3.
