Santa Clara Blackhawks 11, Cougars 2
The Cougars were dominated by the bigger, faster and older Blackhawks squad. The game was close early, but the Blackhawks wore down the Cougars and broke the game open midway through the second period. The effort picked up late and the Cougars threw their bodies around, but the team was clearly overmatched in this early season game.
