The University of Jamestown hockey team looks to win two games in a row when they go to the University of Mary at 7 p.m. on Nov. 6. The Jimmies come into this game with a 5-4-3 overall record. The Marauders come into this game with an 11-2-0 overall record.
The two teams have played 12 times with the Jimmies owning a 6-4-2 record. The Jimmies are also rocking a two game winning streak in the series. The last time the two teams played was on Nov. 15, 2020, with the Jimmies winning 3-2 in overtime thanks to a goal by Jed Butler.
The Jimmies are coming off a 5-3 win over Colorado State on Oct. 30. The Marauders come into this game off a 6-0 win over Williston State on Nov. 3.
This season, the Marauders have eight players with double-digit points totals including their points leader, Alexander Flicek with 16. Seth Cushing leads the team in goals this season with 7. Flicek has 10 assists to lead the team. In net, the Marauders are led by Conan Hayton’s 0.00 goals-against average and 1.000 save percentage.
Jimmies head coach Dean Stork expects the game to be a tough road game for his team at the Schwan Cadillac Rink.
“Simple, greasy road game,” Stork said.
This season the Jimmies are led by Reid Wilson’s 13 points and 11 assists. The Jimmies’ leading scorer is Logan Berggren with six goals. In net, the Jimmies are led by Tyson Brouwer’s 2.79 goals-against average and Jaysen Maclean’s 0.921 save percentage.
In both of the Marauders’ losses this season, they have given up the first goal. Whereas in 10 of their 11 wins this season, they have opened the scoring. As a result, the Jimmies are looking to start the game quickly according to their starting goalie, Tyson Brouwer.
“Having a good start I think is important and being ready when the puck drops instead of playing catch up…They have a very strong crowd behind them so like I said earlier having a good start is important so we can take the life out of them right away,” Brouwer said.
