<![CDATA[MCRHL at Total Roller Hockey - Sunday Recap]]> In what was the game of the weekend, Miami defeated Grand Valley for the first time this season.  After falling 5-0 and 3-0 to them earlier this year, the RedHawks came out and dictated the pace of the first period.  However, late in the period Cody Hagen gave the Lakers a 1-0 lead.  The two teams skated to a scoreless second period but it was not short of action.  Both teams played disciplined and attacked with the puck.  Early in the third Michael Cavataio added to the Grand Valley lead when he scored in the first minute of play.  Miami never wavered and found two goals of their own in the third coming from Seth Swearingen and Ross Gann.  Just before OT Cavatiao received a roughing call.  Miami’s David Yoder snapped one glove side on the power play for the winner.

With only two weekends left in the regular season, this weekend’s slate of games feature some important matchups in D2 and D3 for Regional seedings.

The stakes were high in a Division 3 matchup of Grand Valley State and Michigan State.  The winner would move firmly into first place in the Division heading into Regionals.  Michigan State came out focused and energized as they took an early 2-0 lead.  Stephen Krause and Anthony Moran scored less than a minute apart.  Instead of building of that momentum for MSU, GVSU seemed to get the spark.

<![CDATA[GREAT PLAINS HOCKEY FIRST SEMESTER WRAP UP]]> Great Plains wrap up first semester games.


Division 1 has been a carousel.  Bethel beat Lindenwood; Mizzou beat Bethel, Mizzou lost to Lindenwood, UMSL lost to Mizzou, UMSL beat MSU, and MSU beat Bethel.  Who can beat who is anyone’s guess in this division?  Second semester should be a great ride for all the Great Plains teams.  We wish Lindenwood good luck as they head west to California before the Thanksgiving break.

<![CDATA[Division 2 Fall Recap]]> New faces are appearing at the top of the D2 standings and showing that although some may be new to D2, they are not to be slept on moving towards the end of the season. Division 2 is probably the most diverse division as of the end of the Fall semester in the ECRHA, however, that by no means indicates that it is smooth sailing to the Regional Championships for some of these teams.

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 11:29:00 CST
<![CDATA[Division 3 Fall Recap]]> If there’s a way to describe Division 3 in the ECRHA, that phrase would probably be, “New Faces.” This year, we saw Division 3’s teams go down to 6 teams. Because of the relatively low amount, all six teams will make the Regional Championships in March. Now, D3 is in the same boat as Division 1 and 2, as they will be ridding of the former pool play playoff format, in exchange for a double elimination bracket setting.

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 02:39:00 CST
<![CDATA[Division 4 Fall Recap]]> Division Four this year in the ECRHA could possibly be the closest and most unfinished division heading into the Spring Semester. With anywhere from six to eight games remaining for the teams, 10 points is the difference between RIT who currently sits atop the division, and 10th place Vermont. So needless to say, the race to Regionals is far from over for all of these teams.

<![CDATA[Lindenwood comes to town]]> Yesterday both Lindenwood’s D1 and D3 Gold squads went 3-0 against WCRHL opposition, but not without opposition.  LU’s D1 squad defeated UC Santa Barbara 3-2, Cal Poly 7-3 and Long Beach State 9-0.  They face Arizona State today, to round off their weekend. 

In the LU/UCSB game, UCSB’s Kyle Clements scored just 13 seconds into the game, assisted by Kyle Mooney.  UCSB would hold that 1-0 lead for all of the first and the first 4 minutes of the 2nd.  At 4:05 of the 2nd period, LU’s Trevor Borja got them on the board.  UCSB had 2 power plays in the 2nd, but were unable to convert.  In the 3rd, it was UCSB taking 2 penalties, and on the 1st one, Trenton Matteson scored a power play goal, to take the lead.  Just 11 seconds later, Anthony Erace scored to put LU up 3-1.  UCSB battled hard, outshooting LU 11-8 in the final period, and scored with 27 seconds remaining in the game, to cut the lead to 1.  UCSB pressed on, but time ran short and the game ended in a 3-2 Lindenwood win.

<![CDATA[UCSB is Aces]]> If you were in the sports book this weekend, the best bet was UCSB.  It wouldn't be easy money, odds would be fairly even, evidenced by their 4-0 start in San Jose.  But you'd end up ahead, since UC Santa Barbara has continued their unbeaten streak, going 4-0 on the weekend.

<![CDATA[Games Are Underway At Weekend #2 In The MCRHL]]> It’s been a great Saturday of hockey in Cincinnati for the MCHRL.

The Ohio State Buckeyes are 2-0 on the weekend with wins against DePaul and Northern Illinois.  Despite a late shorthanded goal by Casey Danielski that tied the game, the Ohio State Buckeyes held off DePaul  7-5 thanks to a power play goal by Kendall Curits and an empty netter from Richard Grant.  Against Northern Illinois the Buckeyes thought they had won the game when Justin Sikkema buried a home a rebound on the power play with 7 seconds remaining.  However, a delay of game penalty gave the Huskies an offensive zone draw in which they took full advantage of when Jake Passini scored his 4th of the game with less than a second to go.  Quickly into overtime the Buckeyes capitalized on a 2-1 as Wesley Tabor scored the game winner.

It was Gagnon who opened the scoring for Hofstra when his first period tally put the Pride up 1-0.

Most notably, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, after a disappointing 2015-2016 season, has started the season 3-0, with several new players, including goaltender Mitchell Myjak.  Returning players Daniel Kumata and Alex Waddel lead the team in goals with 3 a piece, but the rest of the squad is contributing offensively and also playing outstanding defense.

<![CDATA[Western Michigan University Rejoins Division 1 ]]> Western Michigan University Rejoins Division 1

It has been 6 years in the making, but the rebuild of the Western Michigan Broncos and goal to rejoin Division 1 is finally a reality.

In 2009, the Division 1 WMU roller hockey club was going through a rough patch of player retention.  Leadership of the club had diminished to one person, returning players were nearing the end of their tenure at WMU, and recruitment wasn’t a priority.  The lack of player commitment ultimately ended their season early and put the program into a full rebuild.
