Filed under: Sports |

The DBU Hockey Team swept the UT-Arlington this past weekend in a two game series, outscoring the Mavericks 19-1.  On Friday, after a slow start and surrendering the game’s first goal, the Patriots quickly took over as they scored seven unanswered goals.  Tyler Cothran notched his first hat-trick of the season, while Elliot Usvolk had 5 assists.

In game two on Saturday, the scoring started early and never stopped for the Patriots. Ben Murphy and Shawn Fangmanrecorded their first hat-trick on the season and Weston Shattuck recorded his sixth three-goal game of the season.  Josh Messick was perfect net, as he stopped all 31 shots for his first-ever collegiate shutout.

The club will enjoy a much-needed break for Thanksgiving, but will get back to work the following week for the final series of the semester, as they travel to College station to play Texas A&M on December 4 and 5.
