Over the weekend CSU had a handful of club sports competitions,
including a pair of exhibition ice hockey games, a cycling
tournament in Happy Jack, Wyo., and a pair of men’s and women’s
The Rams ice hockey team and new head coach Dave Delozier
sparkled in their first exhibition game of the season on Friday
night, romping Team Moosehead, 7-2 at EPIC.
In front of a fierce home crowd, the Rams took charge early with
their core of returning players including Jason Bowers and Ryan
Lewis leading the way.
Both Bowers and Lewis scored twice.
“We had a lot to build on and we’re real pleased with tonight’s
result,” said Assistant Coach Michael Zucker. “The guys played with
a lot of heart.”
The two exhibition games were an opportunity for Delozier to
test his lines, try out some new strategies and allow goaltenders
Logan Huffman and Elliot Ritter to get enough action to be ready
for the first regular season game against DU on Oct. 10.
“Technically the team played very sound,” Delozier said. “We
felt like we had a pair of goalies good enough to give us depth,
which is key to winning the championship.”
The Rams took the second exhibition game against Moosehead on
In other weekend activities, the men’s soccer team moved to 2-0
on the season after a 3-0 victory against Johnson and Wales. Drew
Delmanhorst scored twice and Chris Taylor added another to the Rams
The women’s Gold soccer team also had a pair of games over the
weekend. The ladies took down CU on Saturday, 2-0 and ended up
tying their second match, 1-1 on Sunday against UNC.
The Rams cycling team enjoyed more success in their second
tournament of the season. Head Coach Steve Owens, an alumnus of
CSU, was proud of the success and support the cycling team has
received in just the first few weeks of competition.
