The No. 14-ranked University of Oklahoma® Hockey club score four goals in both the first and third periods tonight on their way to a 9-2 victory over St. Cloud State University tonight before a crowd of 972 at the Blazers Ice Centre in Oklahoma City. Sooners forward John Leighty scored the first two goals for OU, at 1:15 and at 8:47 of the first period to put the Sooners up 2-0. St. Cloud State scored to make it a 2-1 game but forward Jake Krumm scored just over a minute later to make it 3-1.
