The UTEP Miners Hockey Club wrapped up their regular season against the UNM Lobos this past weekend.
The Miners improved their record to 28-3 on the season as they beat the Lobos 5-2 Friday night and a commanding 11-3 Saturday night.
The weekend series was a good tune up for the upcoming TCHC Championship that UTEP is hosting February 9-11th.
"UNM always plays us tough. They are a solid team with solid goaltending. From top to bottom, they play consistent, tough hockey. We had a good game plan and were fortunate to find the back of the net." Coach Herman commented following Saturday night's win.
Next up for the Miners is the TCHC Championship tournament. As the #1 seed, the Miners will wait till Friday at 3pm to face-off against the winner of Texas Tech and UNT (Thursday at 2pm).
