Rhinos Win 3-1, but do not advance

03/27/2008 5:14 PM -

But it was not enough to overcome the huge goal deficit suffered in El Paso’s first game against the New Hampshire Monarchs in the Rhinos quest for the wild card berth in the semifinals.

Ironically, instead, the team that finished second to El Paso in the Western States Hockey League, the Phoenix Polar Bears, earned the wild card by virtue of a narrow defeat in their first game and two solid, multi-goal wins.
