FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tucson Ariz.- University of Arizona Wildcat Hockey defeated Colorado State 8-2 on Friday night to pick up first win of the season. This was the first Arizona Wildcat hockey game at home since the Cats defeated ASU 3-1 on February 29th, 2020. The Wildcats put on a show for all the fans in attendance and those watching YouTube with multiple goals every period. Arizona rookie Connor Zeigler put two in the net, while rookies Noah Vance, Will Josephson got their first in a Wildcat uniform.
When asked about returning to the TCC after an almost 600-day layoff, head coach, Chad Berman, said ‘It means everything, the guys needed to have this and needed to feel this, but most importantly it’s about you.. Thank you all for coming out to support us.”
The Wildcats will be back in action tomorrow night to take on the same Colorado State Rams for the final time this season. All UArizona students this year get into the games for free this year with a valid Cat Card. Students will also receive a special offer of a chocolate covered banana and a strawberry daiquiri for $6 at tomorrow’s game. Fans can stay late for a chance to meet the Wildcats following the game.
Arizona Wildcat Hockey would like to give a big thank you to all the fans that came out tonight. It was great to see so many smiling faces back at the Tucson Arena, we are excited to be back at home this season and playing hockey. Thank you to all the Tucson community that has stayed supportive of us during 2020, and we hope to see you all soon at the TCC.
