The Cyclone Hockey team fought hard in the third period to try and make a comeback against Robert Morris, but it wasn’t enough as Iowa State fell to the Eagles 3-2 in the first round of the ACHA National Tournament. 

The scoring for Robert Morris was disbursed throughout the first part of the game. The first goal came from Alex Anderson with the assist coming from Joshua Hart in the first period. 

The second goal came from Anderson again with the assist coming from Mike Cacciato in the second period. The third and final goal for Robert Morris came in the second period as Nicholas Gnagni found the net with 4:30 left in the second period. 

During the first two periods, the Cyclones weren’t able to generate any goals making it a 3-0 lead for Robert Morris heading into the final period. 

Iowa State came out firing in the third period and were determined to keep their season alive. About four minutes into the final period, Tony Uglem found the net and the first goal for the Cyclones. Then, about three minutes later, Trevor Sabo scored the second goal for Iowa State. 

With the momentum heading into Iowa State’s favor, the Cyclones tried to find ways to score and tie the game up, but to no avail. Iowa State pulled its goalie, Derek Moser, with a little over a minute left in the game, but still weren’t able to score. 

The loss this morning to Robert Morris ends Iowa State’s season with an 18-18 record.
