By: BJ Pickard, Sports Information Student
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (UWECBlugolds.com) - The UW-Eau Claire men's hockey team tied UW-River Falls 1-1 Saturday at Hobbs Ice Center.
The game was the second of two meetings between the teams this weekend. River Falls defeated the Blugolds 2-1 in the final seconds of last night's game.
River Falls scored midway through the first period of Saturday's game and appeared to be on its way to a second straight win against the Blugolds. But at 18:13 in the third, Eau Claire's Tyler Romasco (So.-Perry, Ohio) scored his first goal of the season on a power-play to send the game to overtime. Joe Bluhm (Sr.-Red Wing, Minn.) and Brant Marple (Sr.-Apple Valley, Minn./Eastview) were credited with assists on the play.
Eau Claire outshot River Falls 41-35 in the game and won the penalty battle, recording just four penalties for eight minutes while River Falls totaled seven for 25 minutes.
Brandon Stephenson (Fr.-Saline, Mich.) manned the net all 65 minutes for the Blugolds, allowing one goal and recording 34 saves.
The Blugolds (2-3-1) are off until next Friday when they travel to UW-Superior. The game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
