UPDATE: COC Hockey Team Loses Championship Match
Team headed for consolation round after championship competition ends with Thursday's game.
The College of the Canyons hockey team finally met its match today, as the Cougars were defeated 7-2 by Grand Valley State University in the second round of the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) Division-III National Championships.
College of the Canyons will now move to the tournament’s consolation bracket where they await the loser of the match-up between Saginaw Valley State University and nationally top-ranked Northern Arizona University (NAU), which is currently being played.
Grand Valley State University will face the winner of that match-up.
Last month the Cougars defeated NAU in the Pacific Collegiate Hockey Association (PCHA) championship game to win the coveted Adam’s Cup and advance to Rochester.
