The Buffs could not build off of their great win against Metro State with their two games this weekend. They were without defenseman Zach Clawson, and his absence had an affect on the team. Against UNC-A, Nick Ramsey and Scheyler VanSickle scored twice to give Colorado the 2-0 lead at the end of the first. However, UNC scored in the first period and added 4 more in the third to give them the win 5-2. Kyle Smith had a solid game, making 34 saves in the loss. In the second game, Adam Steinberg scored both of the Buffs' first period goals, and the score was tied at two. Scheyler VanSickle scored 30 seconds into the second to give the Buffs the lead, and Gabe Margione equalized later on to tie the game at 3. Scheyler started off the period with a quick goal to give Colorado the lead. Then, Denver scored three more goals and finished Colorado off, 6-4. The Buffs will have two months off before returning to the rink in mid-January. Stay tuned for more updates!!
Your Colorado Buffaloes will look to build off of their impressive victory against D1 Metro State this weekend when they take on University of Northern Colorado-A and Denver University. Colorado has not yet played UNC-A this season, and Denver won the first meeting this season 8-4 in the preseason tournament. These are the last games of the semester before the Buffs restart play in January. The puck drop against UNC-A is at 5 p.m, and the game against Denver is scheduled for 7 p.m. Come out to RMR in Lakewood and support your Buffs!!!
After a tough loss against CSU earlier in the evening, the Buffs rebounded very strong with a great effort against the Division 1 squad of Metro State. The Buffs found themselves down in the first period as Ryan Donahue scored for the Roadrunners with 1:17 remaining in the first. That will be the first and the only lead Metro State will have all game. Jake Sundling finally broke through the Metro State goaltender 2:45 into the second period, and Collin Luben added a powerplay goal to give the Buffaloes the 2-1 lead heading into the third. Then, they jumped out to a 5-1 lead with 9:41 remaining in the game. Metro State did not quit, and they scored two goals within 45 seconds of each other to bring the game back to 5-3. Fortunately, the Buffs came back strong, and they ended up winning the game 7-4. This was the Buffs first win against a Division 1 squad in over a year, and it gave Metro State its first loss of the season. The Buffs end the weekend with a 2-4 record. They will be off next weekend before finishing out the semester schedule against UNC-A and Denver on November 20th. Let's go Buffs!!!
The Colorado Buffaloes fell short in the first regular season installment of the Rocky Mountain Showdown against Colorado State. It took the Rams less than a minute and a half to jump out to the early 1-0 lead. After Zach Clawson tied up the game four minutes in, the Rams took advantage of many two-on-one opportunities, and they were up 4-1 by the end of the first. The Buffs played an even game with the Rams for the rest of the game, but the 3 consecutive goals given up in the first period turned out to be the difference, as the Rams took the game 7-4. Zach Dahlgren had a hat-trick in the game, and Scott Glen scored two goals for the Rams in the win. Zach Clawson had two goals, Collin Luben had a goal and an assist, and John Fritts made 18 saves in the loss.
Your Colorado Buffaloes will look to take the first game of their season series against the rival Colorado State Rams this Saturday! Colorado has come off a couple of great efforts against UNC-B and UCCS the past weekend, and they will look to duplicate that effort against a very good Colorado State hockey club. Colorado State won the last meeting 8-1 in a pre-season game earlier this season. Shortly after this game, your Buffaloes will be out on the rink once again to play Metro State's A team. Puck drop will be at 4 p.m against CSU, and 6 p.m is the start time for the game against Metro State. Come out to RMR in Lakewood and support your Buffs!
Your Colorado Buffaloes finished off their weekend campaign by playing the newly-founded hockey club from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. UCCS showed why they should be in consideration for the top team in Division 2. The Buffs kept the game competitive, but the Mountain Lions overpowered the Buffs by taking the game 5-1. Ryan Pederson scored a hat-trick for the Mountain Lions, and Zach Clawson scored the lone goal for the Buffs on the powerplay. Kyle Smith put up a solid performance, stopping 30 of 35 shots in the loss. The Buffs fall to 1-3 after this weekend, and they will look to rebound next weekend when they take on Colorado State and Metro State-A.
Your Colorado Buffaloes played a very impressive first game against the B squad of University of Northern Colorado. The Buffs overpowered the Bears with a quick start, jumping out to a 5-1 lead by the end of the first period. Collin Luben added two more goals in the second period to complete his hat-trick, and the Buffs were up 7-1 at the end of the second period. UNC scored a couple of goals in the second, but that was only mere consolation. Colorado kept their solid play up, and they ended up rolling, 10-3. Collin Luben finished the game with 4 points (3 goals, 1 assist), and Nick Ramsey and Zach Clawson each finished with two goals, with Nick picking up an assist in addition to his two goals. John Fritts was not tested much, and he finished with 12 saves in the win.
