Inconsistent play through 60 minutes led to Miami hockey falling 2-1 to National Collegiate Hockey Conference opponent Colorado College. Two second period Tiger goals and the RedHawks’ inability to finish plays in the third led to the teams splitting the two-game series. “We’re at home and you have to come to play every night,” head coach Enrico Blasi said at his post-game press conference on Saturday. “Our conference is tough — you know that teams are going to be well prepared and they’re going to be ready to battle.” The RedHawks (4-4, 1-1 NCHC) came out flying, looking...Read More
Miami field hockey took home the Mid-American Conference Tournament Championship for the third time in Kent this weekend after defeating Appalachian State University 6-1 on Friday and Kent State University in overtime 2-1 on Saturday.

They dominated ASU for the second time this season, outshooting the Mountaineers 18-2 and leading in penalty corners 11-2. “Our team this year has more heart than I think I’ve ever played on a team with,” senior back Makenna Colby said after the win Friday. “The...Read More
Ben Eaves will always be a hockey player.

Eaves, 35, is now...Read More
Miami hockey rallied from a 2-1 deficit against National Collegiate Hockey Conference opponents Colorado College to win 3-2 in overtime. Freshman forward Casey Gilling sent the game to overtime and junior forward Josh Melnick had the sudden-death goal that gave the RedHawks their first conference win of the season. “That’s what’s in store for the rest of the year,” head coach Enrico Blasi said. “No surprise to me that in conference play it’s going to come down to the wire. It’s a tough league, tough teams, and I thought CC played extremely well tonight. The RedHawks (4-3, 1-0 NCHC)...Read More
Miami hockey will play its first National Collegiate Hockey Conference series this weekend at home against Colorado College. The RedHawks enter the two games with two huge wins over UConn last weekend, and with a detail-oriented mindset. “When you add all those little things up, usually at the end of the night, they translate to big plays,” head coach Enrico Blasi said at his weekly press conference on Monday. “If we can continue to focus on that on a daily basis and be the best version of ourselves, then we’re going to get better and ultimately, that’s the goal.”...Read More
