After a heartbreaking 0-1 loss to Simon Fraser on Sept. 23, the Seawolves redeemed themselves by blowing out the Red Leafs 6-0 on Dec. 2 and 4-0 the next day at the Seawolf Sports Complex. 

On Dec. 2, the Seawolves took an early 1-0 lead only two minutes into the opening period after Matt Johnson broke away from SFU's defense and fired the puck past the goalie. 

Ten minutes later, Ben Almquist took advantage of the Seawolves' power play. With some fancy stick-handling, Almquist glided past the Red Leaf's and increased UAA's lead to 2-0. 

The second period featured a quick goal off the stick of Derek Hamelin and two more goals from Connor Cole and Almquist a few minutes later. 

The Seawolves weren't satisfied with a 5-0 advantage though. UAA entered the third period eager to blowout SFU further. With just over 11 minutes left in the game, Dylan Finlay scored the final goal of the game and helped his team win 6-0. 

UAA goalie Nolan Kent played a perfect game, stopping all 13 shots by the Red Leafs. The Seawolves outshot the opposing team 26-13. 

SFU returned to the ice the next day desperate to defeat UAA, but the outcome was the same. The Seawolves dominated the ice and took the game 4-0. 

Brandon Lajoie put UAA on the scoreboard with a short-handed goal eight minutes into the game. Neither scored for the remainder of the first period.

After a scoreless second period, the Seawolves scored three goals in the third, with Carson Kosobud making the first one by ricocheting the puck off the boards and into the net in the first minute. 

Cole found the net four minutes later and Brett Bamber scored the final goal of the night with 11 minutes left in the game. The Seawolves defeated SFU 4-0. 

UAA goalie Joey Lamoreaux made 19 saves to earn the shutout for the Seawolves. UAA outshot the Red Leafs 30-19.

The Seawolves will travel to Fairbanks to compete in the first of six games in the Alaska Airlines Governor's Cup on Dec. 9 and 10. The Dec. 9 game is at 7 p.m. and the Dec. 10 is at 6 p.m. Visit for live links and stats.
