Ice Miners Ask for Communty’s Support to Raise Money for Postseason Play

Following a 23-0 win Sunday afternoon against TCHC opponent North Texas, the UTEP Miner hockey squad clinched the TCHC regular season title.

In first place, with 48 points, UTEP earns an automatic bid to the semi-finals of the TCHC playoffs next month, February 7-9, in Dallas, Texas.

As a student run organization funded 100% by the players, the Miners have started a Go Fund Me in hopes of raising money to help offset costs for postseason play.

This season the Miners have complied a 21-1-1-1 record so far with only two regular season games remaining. With only two losses, only one loss in regulation, and a undefeated record at home.

This season alone, the Miners average 9.29 goals per game and have tallied 223 goals. In comparison to other TCHC opponents the Miners rank 1st in goals per game, power play percentage and penalty kill percentage. The Miners have outscored their opponents by three or more goals in 19 out of 24 games this season.

Winning the conference tournament, will give the Miners an automatic bid to the ACHA Western Regional Tournament in Tempe, Arizona next month, February 28- March 2.

To donate to Miners, go to minershockey.com for more information or visit their Go Fund Me page.
