CSU club hockey unable to capitalize on fast start in loss to CU

The Colorado State club hockey team got off to a fast start in the second game of a back-to-back series with rival Colorado Saturday evening. The Rams got a quick goal but were unable to keep up with the Buffaloes’ scoring and lost 6-2, falling to to 8-21-2 on the season.

Rams’ forward Austin Ansay scored just fifty five seconds into play and was assisted by Elijah Aquilina. The Rams played inspired defense in the first period, feeding off the crowd’s energy. Colorado broke through with a goal from Buffs defender Ben Hull seven minutes into the first on a power play. Penalties would come back to hurt the Rams again before the end of the first. With just four minutes left in the period, Trace Jablin scored for Colorado.


Colorado State once again came out and played good defense to start the second period. However, unlike the first, the Rams struggled to get any offense going. The Buffs would add to their lead eight minutes into play with a goal by George Gruber VII, then the game was broken open with Colorado scoring two more goals in the period by Matt Anders and Jake Bauer. The Rams were shut out and went into the third trailing 5-1.

The Rams would get one goal seven minutes into the period by Liam Millar, but it was too little to late. Colorado state was swept in the series with Colorado by a combined score of 11-3. The Rams only have three games left in what has been a season to forget but will look to end on a high note.

The Rams will be back in action Thursday, Feb. 15 and Friday, Feb. 16 as they travel to take on the University of Jamestown in North Dakota.
