MARSHALL, Texas – Let’s continue our countdown for the top 10 team moments from last season. Our number eight moment takes us to unchartered territory: the ice hockey rink.

In their inaugural season, the East Texas Baptist University hockey team gave fans a thrill as they started their first season in club level. Despite losing their first five games, ETBU would secure a 7-6 win vs. Texas State University for their first win of the season. Following a loss to TSU the next day, ETBU would go on an incredible six-game winning streak.

ETBU outscored their opponents 43-10 during the streak as they shutout North Texas in their first two games by scores of 12-0 and 6-0.  Against Louisiana State University in the battle of Tigers, ETBU crushed LSU 10-1 in the first game before edging out a 5-4 victory the next day. Then ETBU traveled to Farmers Branch, TX for a rematch at UNT where they won two close games by scores of 4-2 and 6-3.

The winning streak brought ETBU’s record to 7-6 to that point. They would finish out their season with a 12-11 record overall.
