PSU Icers’ Season on Thin Ice After Losing Two to Ohio

The Penn State Icers came back from winter break by losing two games to Ohio last weekend. With the losses, the Icers' play-off hopes remain uncertain in a season that has seen Penn State play well below their own lofty standards.

On Friday, the Icers went down early to fourth-ranked Ohio, giving up a goal just four minutes into the game. Penn State let in three more goals in the second period, which forced goalie Teddy Hume out of the net in favor of Matthew Madrazo. Chris Cerutti scored in the third period to make it 4-1, and Madrazo stopped all 19 shots he faced, but it was not enough to overcome the four-goal deficit.

Saturday Morning Cartoon Series Returns

Do you miss waking up watch cartoons Saturday mornings when you were younger?

The series honors the late Mayor Bill Welch, who had supported the event in its first year.

Once again the series will feature classic Warner Brothers cartoons and the theater promises "a great mix every week". For those of you who may watch cartoons every Saturday anyway, it may be a different experience on the State Theater's 31-foot movie screen.
