The first two games of the Spartan’s 3-game road trip were against the CSU Long Beach 49ers. Even though the Spartan’s arrived directly at the rink from San Jose, they showed no signs of road legs as they started off the scoring less than 2 minutes into the first period on a goal by forward Jon Rivard. The Spartan’s didn’t let up as they skated into the first intermission with a 2-1 lead.
The second period was all San Jose State. Led by their defenseman, SJSU garnered 3 goals from it’s blueliner’s, 2 of which were by newly named captain Christian Rendino, and went into the dressing room after the second period ahead 5-1. The trend would not end as the Spartan’s added another goal in the third and skated away with a 6-1 victory on their opponents home ice.
