Lions Finish Sweep of USC...
The Lions finished their first semester with a 5-3 win over USC, completing the season sweep of the Trojans going 3-0. The Trojans got on the board early, but it was all LMU after that, as Kyle Martins scored 4 of the 5 LMU goals. Sterling Abrahams put in the other goal, and Fink and Che both had 2 assists. Banez held on for his 2nd win of the season, and the Lions are headed to winter break with a victory. The Lions are off until mid-January, and come back to a tough, and extremely important set of games against CSULB and SJSU. The team wishes all our fans a happy holiday, and we'll see you next year!
LMU Falls in 2nd Rankings...
The Lions had a really rough ranking period, going 0-5-1, and as a result, fell from the top 10 in the rankings. The Lions would drop only 3 spots though, and occupy the 11th spot this ranking period. The team went though a rough patch of games, and were certainly not playing their best hockey. The tie came againt #3 ranked Weber St, and LMU had the game won until the final second of play. The third ranking period is under way, and only one game remains in the ranking period and semester, December 5 at USC. Though the Lions had a rough patch, being so close to the top 10 is a good sign that with continued improved play, LMU can finish in the top 10 and qualify for their first Regional Tournament.
Lions Give Scare to #1 ASU Elite...
The Lions played a complete game against the top team in the ACHA West, and gave ASU Elite a minor scare in their 2nd game of the weekend. ASU would score early in the first, but the shorthanded Lions would tie it up shortly after, as Ogani took a pass from Hyman and slipped it through a screen. ASU would build a 4-1 lead, though LMU had a goal called back. Hyman would score his first of two midway through the 2nd to bring it back to 4-2. In the third, the Lions scored an early PP goal, with Hyman knocking in a rebound and trailed 4-3. ASU would net a PP goal and then a late goal to finish the game with a 6-3 win. The Lions continued their up and down play, and are off until December when they will finish the first semester with their final game against USC. Happy Thanksgiving LMU Hockey fans!
