Frozen Dome

This past Saturday was the Frozen Dome Classic at the Syracuse Carrier Dome in Syracuse, NY. As a Utica College student, I scored a ticket to the festivities for just $10 at Student Activities. My boyfriend and I headed to the Dome around 2┬áp.m. and met up with friends before the Utica College Men’s Hockey team played against SUNY Oswego at 3 p.m. It was a great game, ending in overtime, and eventually, a tie.

There was a break between the UC/Oswego game and the big game of the day- the AHL Syracuse Crunch vs Utica Comets game. During the break, we explored the Dome, checked out some AHL gear on display, met some mascots, and even won prizes!

Karita LOVED meeting the mascots. It was hard to get her to leave them in order to get back to our seats for the game!

At 7 p.m., it was finally time for the big game. Although the Utica Comets lost to the Syracuse Crunch 2-1, it was still an awesome experience because we made history; we broke the record for the largest crowd for an indoor American professional hockey game, clocking 30,715 people in attendance.

Even though we lost, it was an awesome atmosphere and a great experience. I loved being a part of the Utica College student section and cheering for Utica College and the Utica Comets with my friends. The Frozen Dome Classic was a unique way to spend my Saturday and was definitely an experience I won’t forget!
