Hockey Triumphant Over UConn in Road Battle
Thanks to 13 saves in the third period by Trevin Kozlowski, the Army West Point Hockey team topped UConn 2-1 on the road Friday night.

Army jumped ahead thanks to John Zimmerman's first career goal, but the Huskies answered right away to knot the score at 1-1. With four minutes to go in the second period, Marshal Plunkett connected with Daniel Haider for the game-winner.
Kozlowski ended the game with 27 saves including 13 in the final period to maintain the Cadets' lead. The first period was even with both teams recording five shots on goal and one penalty apiece.

Zimmerman one-timed the puck to beat Tomas Vomacka stick side high. Read more.
