Miami winless streak continues vs. CC

A pair of late goals extended Miami’s winless streak to five games and its road losing streak to six.

Colorado College, which had won one game all season, rallied to edge the RedHawks, 2-1 at World Arena on Friday.

Miami, which started 3-1-1, has won just two of its last 10 games and none away from Oxford.

The game was scoreless after the first period, but RedHawks freshman forward Kiefer Sherwood ripped a shot past goalie Jacob Nehama from the high slot off a pass from junior forward Justin Greenberg with 9:11 left in the middle stanza to give Miami the lead.

It was the second marker in as many contests for Sherwood, whose goal was his third of the campaign.

That lead stood up until the Tigers’ Hunter Fejes stole the puck from RedHawks senior center Sean Kuraly and went in for a goal on a 2-on-0 with 9:55 to play in regulation.

Fejes netted the go-ahead and eventual game-winner as well with 2:46 to play, jumping in late to make it a 3-on-2 rush and beating Miami senior goalie Ryan McKay on the glove side to make it 2-1.

The RedHawks (5-8-2) were pinned in their own zone for much of the final two-plus minutes and were unable to pull McKay until 30 seconds remained and even then never generated a solid scoring chance.

Colorado College (2-13) had lost its first 13 games this season and had not won an NCHC game in 11 contests, dating back to last season.

The Tigers entered this game having scored just six goals in six league games and allowed 26, or an average of 4.33.

Miami remains in sixth place in the league with eight points but has played nine NCHC tilts, the most of any team in the league.

The series concludes at 9:05 p.m. on Saturday in the RedHawks’ final game of 2015.
