11/23/2014 - Bears win 2 of 3 at Clash in the Corn Showcase
Your Bears just finished competing at the ACHA D3 Clash in the Corn Showcase this past week, held in Sioux Center, IA, and hosted by Dordt College. The Bears faced the host team Thursday night, promptly handing the Blades a 6-3 pounding. Scoring for UNC -- Taggart, Tabrum, Morrison, Bailey, Pond, and Cupples. Chomyn blocked 27 of 30 shots for the win. Friday afternoon brought tougher competition, with your Bears facing the #1 ranked University of Arkansas. Two power play goals by the Razorbacks proved to be the difference as they defeated UNC 2-0. Rauer played a strong game in net, stopping 25 of the 27 shots he faced, but the Bears were unable to solve the Arkansas netminder who blocked all 26 shots thrown his way.
Saturday morning your Bears faced a feisty squad from Bradley University and quickly disposed of them 8-4. Bears scorers: Taggart, Bailey, Cupples, Garske, Christiaens, and Foster with a hat-trick. Rauer was in between the pipes, stopping 32 of 36 shots.
The Bears would like to wish their fans a Happy Thanksgiving. Let's fill our barn for our Dec 5th game vs our arch-rivals from CSU!
