SETTING THE STAGE: This afternoon’s game is the second game of the weekend between the Sooners and Longhorns…Last night, OU pounded UT into submission by a score of 16-0…OU is now 3-0-0 all time against Texas, scoring a total of 48 goals and giving up only two goals to the ‘Horns...For those going to the OU-Mizzou football game tonight, know that our game should be over in plenty of time to get to Norman before the 7:11 PM kickoff.
OU STUDENTS, FACULTY & STAFF GET IN FOR $1.00 THIS WEEKEND – If you’re an OU student, faculty or staff member, grab a buck, head to the Blazers Ice Centre this weekend, and prepare to get more than your money’s worth of OU Hockey as we beat the heck out of Texas!
OKLAHOMA NOTES: Sixteen out of the 20 Sooners on last night’s game roster notched a point with either a goal or an assist… Defenseman Kevin Zehnder (Pleasanton, CA) and forwards Jesse Bryant (Anchorage, AK), Matt McKinney (Highland Village, TX), Nic Power (Bixby, OK), Blake Martin (Anchorage, AK) and Broderick Browne (Coppell, TX) scored two goals each last night…Defenseman Alex Jacobs (Shelby Township, MI) and forwards Travis McKinney (Highland Village, TX), Shane Vorndran (Fort Wayne, IN) and Chad Hudson (Coppell, TX) each added single markers for OU yesterday…The Sooners were 3 of 7 on the power play…Goaltender Colin Fernandes (Surrey, BC) was a lonely man last night with the lopsided score, as he faced only nine shots in his OU debut…Not only was Jacobs’ goal his first as a Sooner, it came while OU was short-handed…Goaltender Matt Pombo (Allen, TX) is expected to get the start in today’s game…The ACHA D1 Pre-Season Ranking was released earlier today and the Sooners are ranked 7th in the nation; the full ranking can be seen at http://bit.ly/qfU1qi .
TEXAS NOTES: Texas goaltender Jason Magusiak faced all 61 shots from OU last night…Magusiak played at ACHA D2 Saint Louis University while an undergraduate and is playing his final year of ACHA D2 eligibility for UT while in graduate school in Austin…Texas was 0 for 7 on the power play yesterday…The UT program’s future is in doubt as their home rink in Austin, Chaparral Ice, is closing in the coming months, leaving the Longhorns without a rink in which to practice or play.
NEXT UP FOR THE SOONERS: The Sooners travel to No. 12 Iowa State for a pair of games next weekend...For more information, please call (405) 631-3307.
