Seawolves take win over Nanooks

UAA takes game one of the Governor’s Cup 3-2

ANCHORAGE- You don’t see a goal scored in the first 15 seconds of a hockey game too often.  However, that’s exactly how Marcus Basara of Alaska Fairbanks started out this year’s Governor’s Cup by putting the Nanooks up 1-0.

It was 15 minutes later when UAA’s Jordan Kwas found Dylan Hubbs past defender Nolan Kaiser. The pass was long and Hubbs was able to receive it with no one in front and Kaiser behind. Nanook goalie John Keeney had no chance to save the hard shot put past his left shoulder making it 1-1.

In the second period, Perry Garrick got called with charging the goal. UAA scored soon after on a power play with Austin Coldwell’s slapshot.

The Nanooks, however, tied it 2-2 three minutes later as players congested the UAA net and Tyler Morley one timed a loose puck that came his way. Three Seawolf players were in front of the net, but didn’t know the puck got way until it was too late.

The game-winning goal came in the third when Keeney couldn’t stop a shot from UAA’s Brett Cameron who capitalized off a broken play.

UAA is now 7-6-2 and 4-5-2 in the WCHA.
