Miami hockey played a complete game with effective positioning and scoring up and down the roster to dominate Bowling Green State University 6-3 in the teams’ season openers last night. “For the most part, I think that’s the closest we’ve played to 60 minutes tonight,” junior defenseman Grant Hutton said post-game. “The job’s done tonight and now we focus on tomorrow and getting the sweep.” The RedHawks (6-6-1, 2-3-1 NCHC) were resilient against a Falcons team (6-5-3, 5-2-3 WCHA) that was quick through transitions, but a team that couldn’t beat the ’Hawks’ consistent play. “I thought positionally we were...Read More

This meeting marked the first ever matchup between the two programs and was a thrilling contest until the end. The Redhawks started well in the first half — competing steadily with the Blackbird offense until 5:22 left in the first half when the game shifted. Starting with a Rod Mills Jr. layup, the ’Hawks went on an 11-0 run to finish the half.
