Ice Hockey Goalie Neifeld Wins Two Awards

The exceptional season that Temple ice hockey has had just keeps getting better.
Owls’ junior goalie Will Neifeld won the Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Hockey Association conference award for Best Goalie and League MVP last weekend. Neifeld holds a tie for first in the MACHA conference with three shutouts and is third in the country in minutes (1473.77). He had a goals against average of 2.69 to go along with a save percentage of .92 in 26 games played for the Owls this year.

Neifeld led the Owls to a 20-11 record this season and a 5th place ranking in the American Collegiate Hockey Association southeastern conference. The Owls will play Bowling Green University tomorrow in the ACHA Regional playoffs at the Northeast Skate Zone at 4:50 p.m.
The playoffs are a single-elimination tournament in which the final two teams advance to the National playoffs in San Jose, CA. If the Owls win tomorrow and win in the finals on Sunday, they will earn their first trip to Nationals in the program’s history.
