Icers Get Revenge in Weekend Sweep

After all the talk of varsity hockey making its way to Penn State last month, something snuck up on us: The Icers, our club hockey team, has finally started playing again!

Going into this weekend, Penn State was 3-0-0 with a couple of wins over Pittsburgh and a 11-0 dismantling of Drexel. But all eyes were focused on this weekend as Central Oklahoma made their way to Happy Valley. It was seven long months ago when the Bronchos knocked the Icers out of the national championship picture with a 2-1 overtime win in the second round of the American Collegiate Hockey Association tournament.

It seemed like déjà vu on Friday night as the Icers, who held a 3-2 lead late in the third period, allowed a game-tying goal with 23 seconds left to send the game into overtime. The result was different this year, though, as sophomore George Saad netted his fifth goal of the young season less than three minutes into the extra period to secure the 4-3 win.

When the two teams returned to Greenberg Ice Pavilion on Saturday, the Icers decided to leave little doubt as they exploded for three goals in the first period, including two power play goals and two goals by forward Chris Cerutti, as they cruised to a 3-1 victory.

The Icers improved to 5-0-0 on the year and are ranked fourth in the ACHA rankings. They are home next weekend for a double-dip with Ohio University. A full schedule for the team is available here.
