Garrity Named WIAC Men's Hockey Player Of The Week
Posted: Tuesday, November 14, 2006
MADISON - UW-Eau Claire men's hockey left wing Sean Garrity (Jr. -North St. Paul, MN) has been named the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) Player of the Week, it was announced today by conference sports information director Matt Stanek.
Garrity recorded the first Blugold hat trick in nearly three years in helping UW-Eau Claire defeat Bethel (MN) and Hamline (MN) during the weekend and improve to 4-1 on the season. Down 4-1 against Hamline, Garrity scored the game's final three goals to give the Blugolds a 5-4 come-from-behind victory. Garrity's first goal came off the power play at 11:00 of the second period to cut the Piper lead to 4-3. It took little time for Garrity to strike again, this time scoring an even strength goal at 13:39 of the second period to tie the game at 4-4. Garrity would complete the hat trick early in the third period scoring again off the power play at 1:52 for the game-winning goal. It is the first Blugold hat trick since Rob Ouimette and Steve Dus both accomplished the feat against the Milwaukee School of Engineering on November 29, 2003. The previous night against Bethel, Garrity assisted on the Blugolds' final goal to secure the 4-1 victory over the Royals. At 4-1, the Blugolds have already doubled their win total from all of last season.
