The University of Georgia Hockey team won their fifth consecutive game last weekend with back-to-back wins at home. The Ice Dawgs defeated Clemson 8-3 on Thursday night, and Georgia Tech 5-2 on Friday night.
However, the biggest win for the team was off the ice. The Georgia Hockey program partnered with Bulldogs Battling Breast Cancer and St. Mary’s Hospital of Athens to raise money for women who cannot afford mammograms. The team raised $10,815 over the course of the weekend, which will go directly to Bulldogs Battling Breast Cancer.

The $10,815 mark topped the $10,000 that the Ice Dawgs raised last season in partnership with Bulldogs Battling Breast Cancer. The money was raised through ap ledge drive for every point the Ice Dawgs scored. Additionally, the Ice Dawgs raised money by auctioning off their special edition Pink in the Rink jerseys.
On the ice, Jackson Katz led the way for Georgia with four goals on the weekend. He was joined by Caleb Santa Maria and Zack Bochenek as the only Ice Dawgs to score multiple goals across the two game homestand.
Five other Ice Dawgs contributed goals this weekend with Dylan Spicer and Max Meyhoeffer both recording their first career goals for the University of Georgia. Aaron Phillips, Austin Krusko and Chris Keresztes all scored one goal on the weekend.
This weekend the Ice Dawgs will travel to Huntsville, Alabama, to compete in the first ever Rocket City Collegiate Hockey Showcase.
