The Spartans started the game off with a bang as forward Erik West scored his first goal of the year just four minutes and twenty seconds into the first period.

Three of which would round out the remainder of the first period, sending the teams to the dressing rooms with the score being 3-1 in favor of the visitors.
The second period would prove to be more positive for San Jose. After allowing an early goal they would bounce back and respond with a goal of their own less then twenty-five seconds later. The period would not feature anymore scoring and would end with the score being 4-2 in favor of Loyola.
To start the final period SJSU flexed their muscles as they came out scoring five straight goals. They would surrender a goal to Loyola but it was of no concern as not only would San Jose respond with another goal of their own but they would also skate away with a comfortable 8-5 win in the rematch.

On Thursday night the Spartans played host to the University of Washington. The game’s scoring was started off by the home team, as SJSU tallied the first goal midway through the first period. The Huskies quickly bounced back though, and scored a goal of their own a little over five minutes later. With only two goals scored in the period, the teams headed to the dressing room tied 1-1.
The second period Washington came out strong and scored less than two minutes. San Jose stood their ground, played their game, and responded by netting a pair of goals before the periods end. Keanu Deguchi and Manny Tonna were among those scoring for the Spartans during the period.
With the Spartans leadin 3-2 to start the third period a push from Washington was expected but unfortunately for them it never came. About midway through the period San Jose struck again on a goal by defenseman Tim Fredrickson. With the tally it put the Spartans up 4-2 and that’s the way it would stay as the rest of the game they set up their neutral zone trap and skated away with the well deserved victory.

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.

Over the weekend the Spartans hit the road to play a couple of teams down south. In four days they played three games, two of which were against CSU Long Beach, while the other contest was against Loyola Marymount University. The boys split games with Long Beach and won the match up against LMU finishing with an acceptable 2-1 mark on the road trip. After the final game on Saturday night, the boys enjoyed some team bonding with a visit to the local hot-spot Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles. Roscoe’s is hands down the best chicken and waffle’s joint I have ever been to and can only be found in southern California, so to say the least, besides the hockey, this was the highlight of the trip.
Once again the Spartan’s played against the Long Beach 49ers but this game had different results. On a mission to avenge their loss from the night before the 49ers came out strong and never let off the gas. The Spartan’s came out flat footed and their effort showed on the scoreboard.
The first half of the game was dominated by CSULB as SJSU found themselves in a 4-0 hole midway through the second period. A rally though seemed on the horizon as goals by Tim Fredrickson and Manny Tonna cut the lead in half and sent the teams to the third period with the score being 4-2 in favor of Long Beach.
Unfortunately, the third period didn’t offer quite the same amount of excitement for the Spartan’s as their rally bid fell short and fell to CSULB by a final score of 5-2. With the loss the Spartan’s split the 2 games against Long Beach on the trip and prepare for their next game against Loyola Marymount University.
