BYU hockey to play Weber State twice during weekend games


BYU hockey will take Weber State University to the ice again on Friday and Saturday.

BYU lost to WSU 8–5 in a tight game on Friday at the Weber County Ice Sheet, but this time the Cougars feel they have a good chance at winning.

“I’m hopeful,” BYU head coach Jeremy Weiss said. “We played well against them last weekend. If we can nail down the defensive end, I’m pretty confident in our ability to at least complete, hopefully get a win.”

The Cougars raised a few eyebrows at their past game against Weber State by keeping up with the Wildcats’ offense.

“We were up, they were up, it was just going back and forth,” forward Mitch Facer said. “It was a real close game.”

BYU also expects Weber State to bring a challenging attitude to Friday and Saturday’s games.

“It’s always a physical game when we play Weber,” Facer said. “I really like playing them. It’s good, solid, rough hockey.”

The Cougars are anticipating the second chance to play against the Wildcats.

“I’m excited for a clean slate this weekend, and I think we can pull out a win,” defenseman Tanner Billingsley said.

Forward Mio Aura said he looks forward to fixing past mistakes to have a better chance of beating the Wildcats.

BYU and Weber face off on Friday and Saturday at the Seven Peaks Ice Arena. Both games begin at 7:30 p.m.
