Icers Take Two Over Golden Rams

Starting the weekend with a 7-1 win at West Chester was certainly good news for the Penn State Icers, who are looking to climb up the ACHA rankings.

This Saturday, the Golden Rams came to PSU with a vengeance (possibly upset over their 1 and 11 record) and it showed. The Rams were able to keep the score tied 0-0 by the end of the first, despite being out-shot 16 to 5 by the Icers.

The second period was when the Golden Rams’ frustration started to become apparent. After two quick goals by the Icers, the Rams were quick to drop the gloves, to the point of running out of room in the penalty box with 28 minutes worth of penalties. Unfortunately, this strategy failed to help them, as they finished the second period down 2-1.

Going into the third, it became clear that the Golden Rams were being outplayed by the Icers.  PSU was able to score another two goals early in the 3rd, bringing the score to 4-1. For the rest of the game, despite one lucky goal by the Golden Rams, the Icers were able to maintain their lead, winning their 4th game in a row.

Up next for the Icers are two crucial games at fourth-ranked Delaware. Two victories would go a long way to ensuring a post-season berth for Penn State.

Upcoming schedule:
Friday: at Delaware, 7 p.m.
Saturday: at Delaware, 5 p.m.
