Colorado State club sports teams keep rolling as the all the

Rams teams are on fire. Last week CSU teams didn’t suffer a

loss.

Hockey

The CSU Rams hockey team finished its season the right way,

beating the University of Wyoming Cowboys 4-2 on Saturday Night at

EPIC. The win gave the Rams a 21-5 record overall heading into the

National Playoffs.

The Rams are at the University of Maryland for the playoffs,

which most teams look for as an indicator of whether the hockey

season was a success or failure.

CSU kicked things off last night against the Central Michigan

Chippewas in a late game. As for the other two teams in Pool A,

Penn State beat Miami 4-3 in overtime.

Other teams from the Western Division of the ACHA in action in

Maryland are No. 2 Colorado, which scored three goals in the third

period to tie the game and beat Indiana in the extra frame 5-4.

Utah State lost to the Davenport University Panthers 4-1, and the

Trojans of Southern California got crushed by Indiana

University-Pennsylvania 9-1.

The rest of the week for the Rams shapes up like this: Thursday

the Rams will face off against Penn State, and Friday they wrap up

pool play with Miami. The Hurricanes are a big threat to the Rams’

hopes for a championship; even with the loss to Penn State, Miami

is a good team in Pool A.

Lacrosse

The CSU club lacrosse team continued its dominance over the rest

of the division and league this weekend. The Rams beat the Texas

A&M Aggies 22-8 on Friday and the Colorado College Tigers 11-6

on Saturday — both games took place in Colorado Springs.

This weekend the Rams will play Washington University of St.

Louis at 1 p.m. Saturday on CSU’s intramural fields. This will be

the only game this weekend for Rams, who travel to Eugene, Ore.,

for games against the University of Oregon and Sonoma State next

weekend.

Baseball

CSU club baseball rolled last weekend sweeping Weber State in a

four game series. Friday the Rams won 24-8 and the second part of

the double-header 5-2. Saturday the Rams won the first game of

another twin bill with a shutout 3-0 and the second game 8-6.

This weekend the Rams will host the Border War as the University

of Wyoming Cowboys come to CSU. Both games, Saturday and Sunday,

will start at noon.
