MEDFORD, Ore. — "It was electric last night, fans were unbelievable. It was a very fun game to be apart of."
That's how Oregon Ducks club hockey team's head coach Rylee Orr described The Rrrink's atmosphere on Friday night's game. It was something he hoped the crowd would bring again Saturday night in their final game against San Jose State back at "The Madhouse."
Oregon did not disappoint any of the fans in attendance Saturday night, tallying seven goals and plenty of big hits that kept Southern Oregon hockey fans on their feet.
It was originally scheduled to be a location split, with one game played in Eugene and another played in Medford, but the Ducks team liked playing in front of the Southern Oregon crowd so much they decided to make a weekend trip out of it.
"Like I said, it was an electric crowd and everyone kind of fed off that," Orr said.
The team, now 15-1-1, is having one of their most successful seasons in program history, which dates back to the 1990s. One of their wins came against two-time national champion Florida Gulf Coast earlier this season.
