UW Hockey Club Loses Two Games
December 12, 2011 — The University of Wyoming hockey club dropped a pair of games last weekend against the Cheyenne Stampede of the Western States Hockey League (WSHL).
The Cowboys fell 4-1 Friday in the opener of the home-and-home series, then lost 5-2 Saturday at the Cheyenne Ice and Events Center.
Taylor Freeman (Parker, Colo.), Dan Lang (Casper) and Ben Squires (Centennial, Colo.) netted goals for UW. Jake Bates (Jackson), Mitch Nelson (Sheridan) and Tyler Roberts (Douglas) had assists.
