OWLS HEADED TO ACHA NATIONAL TOURNAMENT!!!
The owls won two straight games at the ACHA Regional tournament, propelling them into the ACHA National Tournament slated to take place March 9th to the 12th in Holland Michigan. This is the first time FAU has attended this tournament since their 2004-2005 season.
FAU took it to USF in an early game on Friday, ousting their familiar foe 10-4 in what was considered pay back for the two losses to the Bulls earlier in the season. On Saturday, the Owls faced off against southern powerhouse U of Arkansas, a team who attended Nationals in 2009-10. The game was end to end and very exciting. The owls were able to tie the game and eventually take the lead in the second period. Midway through the third period, Arkansas was able to stuff the puck home making the score 3-3
In the last 2:30 of the third period, the Razorbacks went a man short after commiting a penalty. The Owls in brilliant fashion took full advantage of this PowerPlay and put the puck in the net to secure a 4-3 win!
As more information comes in, we will keep the fans posted!
