NCRHA 2010 Championships
Both the crowds and the volume have begun to increase at the Silver Creek Sportsplex as the action heats up on the first morning of play at the National Collegiate Roller Hockey Championships at Silver Creek Sportsplex in San Jose, CA.
In Division I games that started at 9 a.m., Central Florida outlasted Ohio State, 4-3; North Texas edged Florida Atlantic, 4-2; and Hofstra squeezed past Towson, 2-1.
In 10 a.m. games, Long Beach State solidly defeated Rutgers, 6-3; Arizona State clobbered Rhode Island, 10-1; and Connecticut handled UC Santa Barbara, 7-3.
Games in progress include Cal Poly San Luis Obispo taking on Sam Houston State, and Michigan State against the University of Missouri - St. Louis (UMSL). At the beginning of the third period, MSU and UMSL were tied up at 3-3, but UMSL has scored two quick goals to take a 5-3 lead. With less than 7 minutes left, Cal Poly was up 7-2 over a very short-staffed (one substitute) Sam Houston State team.
