UAH Hockey falls on the road

Dropping its final game of its Thanksgiving road trip to the Northeast, the UAH hockey team fell 9-1 at New Hampshire on Saturday evening. The loss drops the Chargers to 0-14-1, while New Hampshire improves to 6-6-2.

After the Blue and White surrendered a pair of goals within a span of two minutes at 13:33 and 15:42 of the first period, the Chargers cut the lead in half. With less than two minutes left in the frame, Sebastian Geoffrion scored an unassisted goal while the team was shorthanded.

The shorthanded goal was the first of the season for UAH, and it also marked Geoffrion's first tally on the year.

The momentum was halted, however, by the hosts as they again struck twice in rapid fashion in the second period as they notched goals at 3:11 and 5:50. The Wildcats added two more goals in the middle period, and they scored three additional times in the final period to produce the 9-1 final.

On the night, the Chargers were outshot by a 37-21 margin as C.J. Groh picked up his first start in goal this season, registering 28 saves. UAH was 0-for-1 on the power play, while the Wildcats scored on two of their four tries.

UAH will return to action next weekend at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., as the Chargers will take on Nebraska-Omaha.
