No. 22 Colorado Snaps No. 1 Michigan's 49-Game Streak

U-M scored their fourth unanswered at 6:18 as senior captain David Rogers (Wayne, N.J./Wayne Hills) drove down the right wing and cut in front to cut the lead to 12-9. Rogers was on the other end the next time down, feeding senior midfielder Anthony Hrusovsky (Lake Forest, Ill./Lake Forest) as Michigan cut the lead to 12-10 with 3:23 left in the game. It was too little, too late however as the Wolverines weren't able to create another scoring opportunity in the final moments of the game as the Buffalos ended Michigan's 49-game winning streak and rebuilt their own post-season hopes.

Despite the loss, statistically, Michigan won every category. U-M outshot the Buffs 48-33, and scooped up 46 groundballs compared to 26 by CU. U-M was 18 of 26 on faceoffs, and cleared the ball at a rate of 20 for 27 while the Buffs cleared the ball successfully 19 times in 29 attempts. Michigan held Colorado scoreless on two man-up attempts while going 2-4 themselves. Colorado goaltender Bradley Macnee was very strong in net, stopping 18 shots, including 14 in the second half alone.

The Wolverines will have a day off before heading to Fort Collins to take on #2 Colorado State on Sunday, April 11 at Noon MST.
