RedHawks get hard fought victory at Alaska


The RedHawks have made it back into the win column!

After the grueling 3,700 mile journey from Oxford to Fairbanks, the RedHawks get their first 3 points of the CCHA Regular Season with a 2-1 victory over the Fighting Polar Bears Nanooks. The win snaps a 5 game losing streak, and should be a nice confidence booster for The Brotherhood.

Miami got on the board first as Alden Hirschfeld lit the lamp, on assists from Brian Paulazzo and Tyler Biggs at 10:15 of the first period. Alaska tied it up at 9:33 of the second period as Steven Spinell lost control of the puck in front of his own net, allowing Alaska’s Colton Beck to put one home unassisted. Just a minute later though, Reilly Smith hammered in his 5th on the season from Curtis McKenzie and Austin Czarnik for the eventual game winner.

In a game where Miami had more penalty minutes (18) than shots (14), Rico’s squad should be happy with a victory, and we’ll look ahead to a chance at the long distance sweep tomorrow night!

Game time is 7:05 Alaska time on Saturday (That’s 11:05 Eastern for those of  you not watching the end of the College Football “Game of the Century”). The game can be streamed for $8 at, or get the Miami All-Access Pass to hear Greg Waddell provide the Miami audio coverage.

Go ‘Hawks!
