Miners Welcome Nuevo Leon
The Miners will be hosting Nuevo Leon this coming weekend. The team from Mexico will be traveling to the Sun City to take on the UTEP Miners Hockey Club Friday (7:30pm) and Saturday (3:30pm).
Coach Herman commented, "I think it's great for both teams. El Paso being a border city and to be able to host UANL is great. I'm excited for the games. Should be a great weekend."
The Miners are also looking to end a 4 game losing streak. The Miners opened 2016 against Texas A&M, however suffered a 10-3 loss. On the loss, Coach Herman added, "It's always tough coming off the holidays and getting back into games. I was very happy with how our team played during the first two periods, but you could see we just ran out of gas. It was unfortunate because I know our players wanted to put forth a great effort in front of a sell-out crowd. We were short a few of our players, however as a team we can't make excuses but go out and execute each game."
