The UAA hockey team played an opponent it hadn't faced in 25 years to begin the new era of the WCHA. The result proved to be familiar, however. Bowling Green defeated UAA, 6-1 in the first league contest for both teams in the realigned conference.
The Seawolves won only two WCHA games a season ago and finished in last place.
Scott Allen scored his second goal of the season for the Seawolves in the second period, a power play marker bringing UAA to within 2-1. However, the Falcons scored the final four goals, went 3 for 8 on the power play, and outshot the Seawolves, 31-20. Michael Matyas got the start in net for the green and gold and made 19 saves.
With the loss, UAA drops to 3-2-0 overall and 0-1-0 in WCHA play.
