GVSU nets just one goal in 0-1-1 series with Michigan

It has been a season of streaks for the Grand Valley State University women’s club ice hockey team, and that hasn’t been a good thing so far in 2014. GVSU took the ice over the weekend for a two-game home series against ACHA Division I rival University of Michigan on a cold streak after losing lost three of its last four games, and the trend continued as the Lakers were unable to claim a victory in the 0-1-1 weekend at the Georgetown Ice Arena.

Club hockey bounces back over the weekend

Through 11 games last season, the Grand Valley State University club men’s Division II hockey team was in the midst of an 11-game win streak, sporting a 9-1-1 record and looking nearly unstoppable. The winds of change have hit the Lakers this year, as they held a subpar 4-5-1 season score going into this weekend’s doubleheader against perennial powerhouse Ferris State University.

Rough start for Laker club

Outside, the weatherman called for clear skies and balmy, early fall weather over the weekend, but inside the local ice arena, the air was feeling a bit more frigid than usual for the men on the rink clad in blue and white hockey jerseys.



March 20 marked the first official day of spring, but trekking home up through Indiana on a chilled Wednesday afternoon, Grand Valley State University men’s head hockey coach Mike Forbes was noticeably let down by the shift in season that hadn’t come.
