WMU drops both to Miami

By Karl Henkel/Western Michigan Beat Writer

For the first time all season, Western Michigan failed to produce at least one point in a CCHA series after dropping a pair of games to Miami.

On Saturday, after Max Campbell tied the game at a goal apiece, Miami stormed back quickly and regained the lead just 46 seconds later on a tally from Tommy Wingels.

With Miami up 3-1, Derek Roehl tightened the score early in the third period, but Andy Miele scored the fourth and final goal for the RedHawks.

Riley Gill made 27 saves for WMU and Cody Reichard had 23 for Miami.

The WMU power play was held at bay in five opportunities by the RedHawks’ top-ranked penalty-killing unit.

The Broncos followed up Saturday’s dud by allowing seven goals — three from Carter Camper — in a 7-3 loss.

Campbell, Steve Silver and Patrick Galivan provided the scoring for WMU.

Jerry Kuhn allowed the first six goals in two periods of action, collecting 24 saves. Gill made six saves in relief. Connor Knapp had 19 stops for Miami.

Western Michigan (2-10-4, 1-7-4-1 CCHA) has a week off before traveling to Fairbanks, Alaska for a two-game set with the Nanooks. Puck drop is set for 11:05 p.m. EST on Dec. 19 and 20.
