Las Vegas – West #2 Ranked UNLV had a smooth ride and balanced scoring in a 5-2 win over Long Beach State before a large crowd at the Las Vegas Ice Center on Friday night. UNLV raised its season record to 11-1-0. Cody Williams, who had 39 goals last winter, got his 12th to open this game. Niklas Giers, who wears #5 jersey, is one of the greatest defensemen who has ever played for UNLV. 

Alex Feese, was very strong in the net for UNLV. He is now 3-0. Alex, 21, is from Colorado Springs. He played the last two seasons with the NA3HL Gillette Wild in Wyoming.

UNLV’s top goalie Terry Martin (hand injury) of Canada is expected to be back in action soon. Terry said his right hand got struck with a puck which was blasted towards him in a recent game.

From the Blue Line – At the rinkboards was hockey dad Tony Robone father of UNLV coach Nick Robone. “Was hoping to see Larry Sanford here tonight,” Tony said. Larry is a seven-time Las Vegas Roller Coach of the Year….Athletic trainer Kendall Galor’s father is Oren who was a top roller coach for many years…..Adam Hendren was referee and Chris Crowley was one of the linesmen.  Chris, when he played roller years ago, had one of the hardest long-range shots in roller history here in town. When he wound up to fire a shot defensemen moved out of the range of fire – seriously….Hockey mom Sue Greener at the game wearing her Chicago Cubs baseball gear – a blue Cubs cap and Cubs jersey.
