This past Saturday, the Buffs had an opportunity to automatically qualify for Nationals by beating the University of Denver in the RMCRHA Regional Final. Unfortunately, season-ending injuries to two of the Buffs' top-three scorers (Haydn Vance and Austin Carroll) and their starting goaltender (Mark Ekberg - ribs) proved to be the major difference in the two games.
In game 1, Buffs battled back to make the game 3-2 in the middle of the second period, but a series of penalties enabled #15 Denver to take advantage. They took game one 10-2. The second game did not prove much better, as the Buffs were down 4-0 early due to more penalties. They battled back to make it 5-2, but four late goals gave Denver the win and the series sweep. As a result, the Buffs did not qualify for Nationals.
Thanks to seniors Jake Kalscheur and Joe Daileader for their commitments to the team. They will be graduating this year, and hopefully they will continue playing roller hockey at a high level.
Thank you to the fans and sponsors who supported the Buffs during the 2016-2017 season. We will see you next year!
The Buffs will face the University of Denver this Saturday evening for the chance to earn an automatic bid to Nationals, which will take place April 5-9 in Fort Myers, Florida. CU is 1-5 against Denver this year, with two of the contests being decided by at least two goals. Despite the outcome of Saturday's best-of-three series, both teams may be eligible for Nationals due to strength of schedule. However, these two division rivals will definitely make this contest one to remember.
All three games will occur consecutively, with the first game starting at 5pm. Game 2 will start at 6pm, and game 3 (if necessary) will start at 7pm. The contests will take place at Foothills Fieldhouse (formerly Rocky Mountain Roller) in Lakewood. Come on out to support your Buffs!
The Buffs played a slate of 5 games on the campus of Kansas State University. Despite being without their 3 of their top 4 defensemen, the Buffs made the necessary adjustments. As a result, the 7-man Buffs skated three defensemen and 4 forwards. Freshman James Gallmeister, Sophomore Haydn Vance and Sophomore Daniil Lukoyanov provided the defensive spark over the past weekend. Forwards Jared Perskin, Steven Hoernicke, Jordy Ades and Sam Tari helped with the offensive production.
Buffs lost their first game 9-1 against #4 Kansas State, but they rebounded in the next two games to beat Central Missouri 8-7 and Maryville University 12-5. They then took on #9 (D1) Bethel, holding the Wildcats to only a 4-1 lead midway through the second. Wildcats then came on strong and won 10-1. CU then faced a tough Lindenwood Black team, dropping the contest 5-2. The Buffs finish the year 6-11 overall in the regular season, with a 6-9 record within Division 2. All losses were against Top 20-ranked teams.
The Buffs return to Colorado to play the regional final against the University of Denver on Saturday, March 4th. It will be a best-of-three series, with the first game starting at 5pm. Come on out to Rocky Mountain Roller in Lakewood and support your Buffs!
The Colorado Buffaloes dropped both contests last Saturday to the University of Denver at RMR. Scores were 6-3 and 10-4 in games that were competitive until late in the third period. With Austin Carroll missing significant time due to three broken bones in his hand, the Buffs' defensive depth will be tested for the rest the year.
CU look to improve on their 4-8 record by playing a jam-packed 5-game weekend at the home of Kansas State, located in Manhattan, Kansas. The Buffs will face Kansas State, Central Missouri, Lindenwood Black, Maryville University and Division 1 powerhouse Bethel over the course of two days. A great showing will improve CU's chances of a third consecutive nationals invite. You can follow the live scoring by visiting our team page at rmcrha.net. Go Buffs!
