The NC State Icepack defeated the Kentucky Wildcats for the second day in a row on Saturday, Oct. 23 at Wake Competition Center. Both sides scored in the first minute of the game, setting the tone for the high-scoring 8-5 contest.
The Wildcats figuratively punched the Pack in the mouth to open the scoring, slotting a low shot past junior goaltender Griffin Hunt after just 13 seconds of play. The Wolfpack wasted no time to respond as senior forward Colby Pederson netted the equalizer just 23 seconds later.
Behind six power play goals over two games the Icepack swept the University of Delaware Blue Hens 6-4 and 7-1 to improve to 4-1 on the season and remain unbeaten in ACHA M2 play. Along the way, Pack senior Parker Szarek (Raleigh, NC) and junior Chris Solomon (Clayton, NC) recorded their 100th points. Staying with the theme for the weekend, both goals came on power play goals.
