UNH football, hockey teams stay ranked
The University of New Hampshire football team, coming off a 28-21 victory at Maine, held its spot at No. 12 in The Sports Network Football Championship Subdivision weekly poll announced on Monday. The Wildcats (6-2) own the nation’s longest consecutive streak of being ranked in The Sports Network FCS Top 25 for 121 straight weeks.
UNH quarterback Sean Goldrich is a big reason the Wildcats have stayed in the top half of the national poll. The redshirt freshman was named the CAA Rookie of the Week for the second time in three career starts. Goldrich completed 18 of 39 passes for a career-high 283 yards and four touchdowns against the Black Bears. He added eight rushes for 13 yards, including a team-long 12-yard rush.
Goldrich completed passes to seven different receivers and threw a pair of TD tosses to tight end Harold Spears, including a 79-yard connection in the second quarter. That jumpstarted a 28-point run for the Wildcats.
The UNH men’s hockey team, off to a 3-0 start, cracked two polls on Monday. The Wildcats are 11th in the USA Today poll and 12th in the USCHO.com poll.
The host Wildcats defeated Boston University, 4-1, on Saturday night. Sophomore goaltender Casey DeSmith Rochester was named Hockey East co-Defensive Player of the Week after stopping 24 shots against the Terriers.
