The Rivalry Match

Written by: Terence Church  | WVUGo Media - Sports and Active Lifestyles Writer

The Backyard Brawl will be brought to the ice

In the second match of the season, the WVU Division 1 Hockey Club will play the Pittsburgh panthers in the Backyard Brawl. The Mountaineers are currently sitting last in the College Hockey Mid America Standings with 4 wins and 8 losses, and the Panthers are on the opposite end at the top with a record of 12-1. This season hasn’t been the easiest for the Mountaineers, but it’s not too late to turn it around with a whole month left of games. But before the club climbs to the top, they’ll need to get past a good Panthers team who already beat WVU earlier in the season 8-2. The score showed a blowout, but the game was very intensive for the majority of the first period and a little into the second period. It wasn’t until the 10:00 minute mark of the second period when the game started to get out of reach for the Mountaineers. The first game was out of reach, but the second match will bring the same intensity and hatred that the two clubs have for one another, but a different end result.
