The CMU club hockey team steamrolled through the Akron this weekend, sweeping the Zips.

It outscored the Zips 15-5 in the weekend series.

The team had a comfortable lead through the game on Friday and won 5-1.

The series finale took place Saturday afternoon, with CMU completing the sweep of Akron with a 10-4 victory. It was a close game throughout the first half. It was tied at the end of the first period.

Akron then scored an early short-handed goal, but CMU fought back, gaining a 5-4 lead at the end of the second period.

The Chippewas capped off the game and series with five goals in third period, giving them the victory and series against the Zips.

Coach Mike Willett said he was pleased that his team won the games, but not the way it expected to do.

“We have to tighten down every aspect of our game" he said. "Moving forward, our focus has to be on playing a full 60 minutes and playing disciplined hockey," he said. “That is what it will take to beat the best in the Central Region and around the country.”

CMU has a road trip this weekend with three games, two against Northern Illinois and one against Saginaw Valley State.
