A tough loss for USC last night. What started out as a defensive battle with only 1 goal in the first two periods saw 7 goals in the third. This time it was USC that took a 3-1 lead but they were unable to hold off a late offensive surge by the CAL Bears. Final score CAL 5 - USC 3.
What a wild game last night. The CAL Bears jumped out to a 6-2 lead, including scoring two shorthanded goals before USC started their comeback attempt. The Trojans twice came within one goal of tieing the game before time ran out. Final score, CAL 8 - USC 7. The two teams faceoff again tonight at Anaheim Ice at 7:30pm.

I really wish all hockey rinks had photography holes in the glass. One of the most difficult aspects of shooting through glass without photo holes is trying to avoid the reflections of the white walls, lights and/or anything bright behind you, but I digress. This photo just about sums up last night's game between USC and SDSU as the Aztecs defeated the Trojans quite handedly. The two teams faceoff again tonight down in Poway. Hopefully USC will have a full and complete lineup and make a great game of it.
For the second night in a row, USC defeats Oregon by a score of 5-2. It was another big night for Keegan Jones and Chase Thesman as together they combined for 4 goals and 9 goals over the 2 game series. This afternoon Oregon moves across town to take on @uclahockey at Pickwick Ice at 4:30.
