In a rematch of the previous night, the Spartan’s this time traveled up north to once again play thei northern rival, Santa Rosa. Once again this game was viewed as a must win for the Spartan’s as the coaching staff looked to the team to show it’s urgency. Unfortunately for SJSU things did not go as planned on this night as they did not get off to the start they wanted and could never seem to recover.
Santa Rosa started the scoring off and although the Spartan’s managed to respond with a pair of goals, went back to the locker room down 3-2. The second period offered hope with SJSU down only one goal, but defensive lapses plagued the Spartan’s as they allowed three goals during the period. Going into the intermission SJSU was down 6-3.
The third period was much slower and closely contested then the last two periods as SRJC managed to lock down defensively and keep the Spartan’s at bay. With both teams scoring one goal apiece, the final score ended up being 7-4 in favor of Santa Rosa as they defeated the Spartan’s at home on Snoopy’s Home Ice.
