UNH hockey team ranked again

Two home wins over the weekend turned the Wildcats into a ranked team again.

The University of New Hampshire held down the No. 20 ranking in the latest Division I USCHO.com men’s hockey poll released Monday. The Wildcats raised their record 12-10-1 with non-conference victories against previously No. 19 ranked University of Nebraska-Omaha at the Whittemore Center in Durham.

On Friday Kevin Goumas and Trevor van Riemsdyk registered three points apiece in a 6-3 win and, on Saturday in a 5-2 decision, Matt Willows garnered a hat trick. It was his second career hat trick and all three goals were scored in the third period.

Willows, a junior forward, was named Warrior Hockey Player of the Week by Hockey East Monday. Willows ended up recording five points against Nebraska-Omaha, including a goal in Friday’s win.

UNH remains 5-5 in Hockey East, good for third place behind league-leader Boston College (7-1-1) and Providence College (6-2-1). The Wildcats are 3-1 since returning from their holiday break, winning their last three games.

The team resumes play Saturday in Manchester at Verizon Wireless Arena against Granite State rival Dartmouth College at 5 p.m. in the Battle for the RiverStone Cup XIII.
