It took three years for Michael Standke to earn his second career shutout. It took just 20 days for him to earn his third.
Standke stopped 14 UNLV shots Friday night and the Matadors beat the Rebels 6-0.
After putting a lot of pressure on Rebels goalie Quinlan Olds in the first Evan Sharpshair finally broke through at 1:58.
In the second Ellis Bourgoujian fired one past new UNLV goalie Kate Scheafer on the power play to increase the lead.
In the third, now with third string goalie Adam Edikauskas in, Sharpshair scored his second, Branden Casillas added one, Alex Reints scored shorthanded and Casillas potted his second to put the game out of reach.
It was Sharpshair's first career multi goal game. Reints scored his second career shorthanded goal.
With the win the Matadors have assured themselves a winning record for the first time in their Division 2 history.
The Matadors and Rebels will face off again Saturday at 5:30 PM. The Matadors will be looking to win the four game series against the Rebels.
Matadors head back on road
Jan 29, 2015 3:05 PM
The Matadors will look to get back on the winning track with a two game series this weekend at UNLV.
The Rebels traveled to Simi Valley in early October for a two game series and both teams earned a win. UNLV spoiled the Matadors home opener by winning 6-3 but the Matadors got revenge the next night winning 8-6.
Games between these two teams have become increasingly chippy and the Matadors shouldn't expect anything different in Vegas.
You can listen to both games by clicking on the broadcast tab above. Puck drop for Friday night is scheduled for 5:45 and Saturday night for 5:30.
