Dordt College Blades Hockey vs. Colorado State
October 15, 2010
(Sioux Center, Iowa) The Dordt Blades dropped their season opener 7-4 to Colorado State University in front of a packed house at the Vernon Arena.
After scoring the first goal of the game, a power play goal by Kevin Christian from Gary Huitsing, the Blades surrendered 4 straight and went into the first intermission trailing 4-1 to the visiting Rams.
The Rams got the first marker of the third period when captain Aaron Bain got his second of the night to push the lead back to 3 goals. At the 8:07 mark of the period Brandon Fast got his second of the night to make it a 6-4 game, breathing life into the Blades. A CSU penalty after the goal gave the Blades a man advantage and a chance to cut the margin down to one but were unable to capitalize and the power play was cut short when the Blades received a penalty of their own. The Rams then tallied in the 4 on 4 to earn the 7-4 victory.
The Blades will play host to Colorado State again on Saturday, October 16 in the Vernon Arena with the puck scheduled to drop at 4:15 pm.
