Western Illinois University
The Wheaton Thunder hockey team is coming off of a tough weekend of games against conference rival, Western Illinois University at the Owens Center in Peoria, IL. The final score from Friday’s 6:45 game was 11-3. Wheaton then played the next day at 3:00, with the final score of that game being 11-4. The first two periods of Saturday’s game were disheartening, as both teams headed into the locker room with a score of 10-1. However, Wheaton had a gut-check in the 2nd intermission, and came out with a statement in the 3rd period, outscoring WIU 3-1 on the period. The Thunder are off for a few weeks, not playing their next games until the weekend of December 4th, when they will split a home and home series with Lewis. Friday the 4th’s game will be played at Center Ice of DuPage at 8:40 PM, immediately followed by a free fan skate.
