Fresh off Texas Tech sweep, Miner Hockey preps for UNM

Fresh off of last weekend’s domination of the Texas Tech RedRaiders Hockey team, the Miners now prepare for old rival UNM Lobos next weekend. The Miners have now won 5 straight, and look to continue that streak.

Entering the final game last weekend, the Miners didn’t let off the gas from Friday night entering Saturday’s game.

Playing in front of another great crowd, the Miners would open the scoring less than 3 minutes into the game as Jeramy Rezaeepour scoring first once again.  Lukas Znosko would follow suit less than 5 minutes later to put the Miners up 2-0 half way through the first period. Texas Tech would pull within 1 goal, however the Miners would score two more to close out the first period 4-2.

During the second period, both teams traded chances, however it was Texas Tech scoring first to make the game 4-3 half way through.  Anthony Regnier would put the Miners up 2 once again as the second period would come to a close – 5-3 Miners.

The third period was filled with penalties as both teams allowed their emotions to boil over.  However, it was the Miners that would take advantage as they would score an even strength and two power play goals to go up 8-3.

Tech would score on the power play late in the game, however the Miners finished off the Red Raiders 8-4. Next up for the Miners are the University of New Mexico Lobos November 6th and 7th.

The Miners Hockey Club would once again like to thank all of the fans for coming out to support the club.
