Nanooks hockey fall to Alabama-Huntville 3-1

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Our Alaska Nanooks faced a familiar foe last night at the Carlson, that team being Alabama-Hunstville's Chargers. And they were ready to take our Nooks on in their home.
The Nooks haven't had the most eventful season this year, and have only found further disappointment in the aftermath of this 1st of two series. This game concluded with the Chargers winning, 3-1.
Though, the Nooks gave a balanced performance at the start with 1 goal to Alabama-Hunstville's 1 point, they simply were unable to land anything in net for the next two periods.
The Nooks even carried out more than twice the number of shots-on-goal, making 45 to the Charger's 20. They also proved themselves capable by taking 34 out of Hunstville's 26 faceoffs.
Kylar Hope of number 28 was our leader in scoring last night, with Tristan Thompson and Nikolas Koberstein assisting their talents.
This match leaves Alaska at 1-8-2 this season and 1-3-1-1 in WCHA standings. They will face Alabama once again tonight at the Carlson.
"I think that we started out pretty strong, we just had a sense of urgency right off the bat. In terms of our play, I liked our play. Bad report and all of a sudden it's one-nothing. then we come back, played a good rest of the first period. Tied it up at one," said Erik Largen, Nanooks Head Coach.
"Yeah, obviously you are going to be one-puck away, I think we put a lot at them. But I guess it's up to us to get to those areas where we can put them in and put them away. But tonight, yeah, good goalie. Credit to him and their teammate, they shut it down pretty well. But tomorrow night, we'll try to get it a few," said Kylar Hope, Nanooks Forward.
