UCO to Face Ohio In The ACHA Men’s D1 National Championship

The #4 seed, UCO faced the #1 Seed, Minot State in the second game of the ACHA Men’s D1 Semi Finals Monday night. Both teams were evenly matched throughout the game, even ending both the first and second periods tied up. But in the third is where the action picked up for both teams. Sam Rice added to his point streak, sneaking in a goal to push the Bronchos ahead 3-2. A couple minutes later he was able to tickle the net again, further propelling the Bronchos. Not to be outdone, Alexander Jmaeff added his second goal of the night matching Rice’s goal total. Taylor Herndon and Josh Wyatt both added a goal a piece earlier in the contest.

But Minot State would not go away quietly. They chipped away at UCO’s lead finding themselves within striking distance to tie the game several times throughout the last period. However, the Bronchos would not be denied. At the end of regulation, the Bronchos willed themselves into the National Championship game where they will face the #3 seeded Ohio Bobcats on Tuesday March 14, 2017 at 6:00pm (CST)
