SAN DIEGO (Daily Aztec) - San Diego State hockey crushed the University of San Diego, 13-4, in the team’s home opener on Friday night at the Joan Kroc Center.
The win was the first of the season for the Aztecs, who improved to a record of 1-2.
Left winger Patrick Miller said getting the win was a great way to start off the home schedule.
“It feels amazing, hopefully it is the first of many,” Miller said. “It’s always good playing at home, happy with the turnout we got. We always play better when there are some butts in the stand.”
The game started quickly for SDSU, after winger Isaac Miller snuck the puck past the net during the game’s fourth minute.
Trouble loomed later in the first period after Mason Cook was penalized for slashing, but the Aztecs rallied behind senior center Aaron Mayer and Patrick Miller to quickly get not one, but two shorthanded goals.
