Air Force had no control over the federal government shutdown that halved their series against Sacred Heart, but Friday’s 2-1 loss didn’t give us much to work with. A look at this week’s area college hockey top performers:
Nick Halloran, F, Colorado College
After being left off the scoresheet Friday night in a 3-2 overtime loss, ending a personal six-game point streak, Halloran’s line snapped back in a big way Saturday in the team’s first-ever win at Western Michigan’s Lawson Arena. Halloran assisted on second-period power-play goals from Mason Bergh and Trey Bradley, then with 57 seconds left in overtime, he took Bergh’s faceoff win and beat WMU’s Ben Blacker with a quick and accurate shot.
Troy Conzo, F, Colorado College
The freshman had his best weekend so far in Kalamazoo with three points (2 goals, 1 assist) and four blocked shots in the Tigers’ win.
Mason Bergh, F, Colorado College
He won 38 percent of his faceoffs Friday and 41 percent Saturday, but the one that really mattered involved a no-look kick pass back to Halloran in overtime. He had a goal and an assist on the weekend with a team-high nine shots.
