Bowles earns weekly award

The Pronghorns men's hockey team season came to an end this past weekend but it wasn't for lack of effort from goaltender Scott Bowles.

The second-year Creston, B.C. product was outstanding in the three-game series against University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, earning the nod as the Pronghorn Athlete of the Week. Bowles finished the three-game series with a 2.94 goals against average and a .912 save percentage as the Horns fell 2-1 to the visiting T-Birds.

In Sunday's third and deciding game, Bowles made 50 saves in a 4-3, triple-overtime loss. Many of his stops were of a highlight-reel calibre, including a diving paddle save late in the second overtime to keep the Horns' playoff hopes alive.

Bowles is in his second year at the U of L, studying environmental science. A former goaltender with the Calgary Hitmen and Prince George Cougars of the Western Hockey League, he was named team most valuable player in his rookie season with the Horns.
