2007 UNH Wildcat Hockey Alumni Game

The 2007 Alumni Game is in the books.

The White Team, in a tremendous lack of fact checking and lazy reporting by yours truly, won 13-5 or something thereabouts. Stocked with ringers like Glenn Stewart(hat-trick), Jim Abbott(2 goals), Josh Ciocco, Josh Prudden and Jeff Pietrasiak - Greg Rota and the Blue Team never stood a chance even with the defection of Andy Brickley(late as always) from White to Blue where he scored two goals.

It was great to see the various generations of UNH Wildcats interacting including some seemingly humorous words shared between Rota and Abbott after Greg stoned Jim on a breakaway in which Jim apparently let up on the 'old man'. I would hazard a guess that Greg told him that he's not THAT old.

Coach Umile was in attendance of course (come on Coach, lace'm up next year!) and as always was extremely pleased to see the faithful, old teammates and keeping that sharp eye on the minutia of this great game called hockey.

So, we'll look to next year to record some images and possibly some video from this great event and hopefully some 'Cat interviews to let everyone know what's going on with some of our hockey heroes. And now, we reach the roughest stretch of our journey - the wait 'til October - and not just because that's when my birthday falls!

So, stay tuned - I'll be updating regularly with any information I can come up with and I will try to attend some practices to brief the Nation on this year's team.

Go 'Cats!
