MILWAUKEE, WI – The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) hockey team has faced its fair share of challenges this season, but they are proving to be a resilient force on the ice. The mid-season update brings a rollercoaster of emotions for the Panthers, marked by a series of nail-biting encounters.

 

The recent stretch began with two closely contested battles against Marquette, resulting in back-to-back heartbreaking losses. The team then faced UW-Oshkosh, enduring an intense overtime clash that ended in an agonizing loss. Undeterred, the Panthers took to the ice the following night against Oshkosh once again, falling just short in another closely contested match.

 

However, adversity only seemed to fuel the fire within the UWM hockey team. The Panthers responded with an impressive four-game winning streak, demonstrating their determination and resilience. Two crucial victories on the road against Central Michigan set the stage for a triumphant return home, where they secured two more wins against division rival MSOE.

 

As the mid-season dust settles, UWM now stands at a respectable 8-9-2-0-1 (W,L,OTL,T,SOL) record. The team’s recent success has ignited a renewed sense of confidence and unity within the squad, with players and coaching staff alike eager to build on this momentum.

 

With the win streak at four, the Panthers took a well-deserved break for the Thanksgiving weekend. This pause in the action allows the team to regroup and recharge before facing their next formidable challenge. On December 1st and 2nd, UWM will host the #15 ranked Michigan Tech in what promises to be a thrilling series.

 

Looking further into the first semester schedule, UWM will close out the pre-holiday action with a showdown against #21 Purdue-Northwest on December 8th at home, followed by an away game on December 9th.

 

Head Coach Paul Wajgel expressed confidence in the team’s recent performances, stating, “The resilience and determination displayed by our players are commendable. We’ve learned from our early setbacks and are now focused on building upon this positive momentum. The upcoming games against Michigan Tech will be a true test of our progress, and we’re ready for the challenge. We’re taking it one game at a time, focusing on our process, and looking forward to the challenges that December brings”

 

As the Panthers gear up for their upcoming matchups, fans eagerly anticipate witnessing the continued growth and success of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee hockey team in the remainder of the semester.
