The UTEP Miners Hockey Club will be hosting the University of New Mexico Lobos November 6th and 7th at 7:30pm both nights.
The Miners are currently on a five game win streak after sweeping Texas Tech at home during their home opening weekend. The Miners offense has been coming from the line of Znosko, Rezaeepour and Regnier. They continue to get solid goaltending from Lazarski while Dam and Loiselle continue to hold down the back end.
The Miners will rely on a total team effort as the Lobos come into town 4-4 on the season. The Lobos put up 51 goals on a single weekend.
El Paso and Albuquerque are no strangers to the I-25 Rivalry for hockey dating back to the El Paso Buzzards and New Mexico Scorpions days then followed by the El Paso Rhinos and New Mexico Renegades. The Coronado and Franklin Club Composite Varsity teams also face off against high school teams from Albuquerque and area.
The new Miners Hockey Club and established Lobos look to renew the rivalry for years to come.
