NIU Hockey Sweeps RMC-Springfield

 

On Saturday Night the Huskies came out quick and strong, scoring 4 goals in the first period, 2 in the second, and 4 goals in the third period.  Tim Benham got his first victory in net on the season, allowing 4 goals on 27 shots.  Mike Sible and Mike Strumberger both had hat-tricks in both of the games on the weekend, and Chris Bednarek added one goal and three assists on the weekend.  Mike Sible said, “Despite the second period on Friday night the team showed great character.  A weekend like this offensively should really boost our confidence for next weekend’s games.”

The Huskies now play a home weekend away from home, as they will play Eastern Illinois University in Rockford this Friday and Saturday night. 

The next home game at the Ice Centre will be November 7th at 9pm.  That night is also NIU Hockey Greek Night and Fan Bus.  Look around on campus for flyers or contact niuhockey@hotmail.com if interested.
