The Utah State club hockey team’s quest for a national championship took a wrong turn Friday after a 6-5 loss at the hands of Bowling Green at the American Collegiate Hockey Association National Tournament in St. Louis.
Another slow start doomed the Aggies after they fell behind 2-0 early in the first. Utah State battled back but couldn’t quite complete the comeback in game two of pool play.
Scoring for Utah State were defensemen Sean Erwin, Jordan Kerr and Ty Johns. Forward Brian Gibbons added two more goals for the Aggies.
The final game of pool play for USU is on Saturday when they take on New Hampshire. It’s a must-win game for the Aggies to have a chance to move to the knockout round.
