The Colorado State Rams club hockey team went into Maryland with

hopes of bringing a national championship back to the students at

Colorado State.

But the Rams came up short. They won their first game 4-2 over

Central Michigan, who turned out to be a bust in the playoffs

losing all of their games. In the second game the Rams met Penn

State, the Nittany Lions scored three times in the first period to

put the game away with a 4-2 win over the Rams.

On the final day of pool play the Rams needed a win over the

Miami Hurricane and a Central Michigan upset against Penn State;

unfortunately for the Rams neither happened and Penn State went to

the finals.

Penn State got shutout 1-0 to New York University, which went on

to lose in the championship game to the Oakland Grizzlies 5-1.
