Salt Lake City – The Anthony Greener-coached #21 ranked UNLV Rebels will take on Utah University here Friday, Saturday nights at the Salt Lake City Sports Complex. The Utah team includes goal scorer Joe DiBenedetto, born in Anchorage, and who played three seasons on AAA Las Vegas Storm tier hockey teams at the Las Vegas Ice Center. Joe has 6 goals, 6 assists this season for Utah University.

Coach Greener said “We are going to start the same lineup that we had in our first game against Minot except David Anderson who will start in the net against Utah on Friday night.

“We just need to play our systems. When we do and we play hard we are a very tough team to beat.”

From the Blue Line – There will be a snowy mix with temps in low 30s outside of the arena on Friday night….Rebels goalie David Anderson has a 1-2-0 record, 2.70 gaa and a 90.0% save percentage – a bigtime goalie.
