Last year, the Saint Cloud State Men's Hockey team lost to the University of Minnesota all six times they met, including twice in the postseason. This year, revenge came in the form of a series sweep, keeping the Huskies perfect in 2010 and extending their winning streak to eight games.
Saint Cloud used three goals by Jared Festler and two by David Eddy on the weekend with timely goaltending to roll for its fourth consecutive series sweep and propel them into a tie for second place in the WCHA.
The Huskies will be back on the road this weekend at Colorado College to take on a Tiger team that sits just one point behind them in the conference. After this weekend, Saint Cloud returns home for back to back WCHA series.

After a defeat on Friday night to Southwest Minnesota State, the women rebounded with a 63-62 victory on Saturday. Talisha Barlow made a jumper with six seconds to go in regulation and the Huskies improved to 8-8 on the year, with a 3-6 mark in the conference.
The men beat SMSU on Friday to extend their winning streak to 10 games but were tripped up on Saturday as they fell to #4 Minnesota State-Mankato. Mankato shot over 50 percent from the field and made 7 of 15 from beyond the arc to drop Saint Cloud to 13-3 overall and 7-2 in the NSIC. Mankato remains perfect on the year at 16-0.
The men and women will remain on the road this week as they travel to the University of Mary on Friday and Northern State on Saturday.

Behind two David Eddy goals on Saturday and great goaltending from Dan Dunn and Mike Lee, the Saint Cloud State Men's Hockey team swept their third consecutive series this last weekend. The 14th ranked Huskies swept No. 17 Quinnipiac University in non-conference action and seem to be getting hot at the right time.
The special teams netted two more power play goals in the series and Garrett Raboin also scored a short handed goal on Friday. The shorty on Friday was the team's 8th of the year which leads all Division one teams.
The Huskies will ride their six-game winning streak into this weekend when they play a home and home series against the University of Minnesota. The Gophers beat Saint Cloud all six times last year including twice in postseason, so this match-up should have extra motivation this time around. The Gophers have been struggling this year but currently sit just four points behind St.Cloud coming into the weekend.
Listen to KVSC for coverage of both games, with puck drop at 7:07 p.m. Friday at the National Hockey Center and 5:07 p.m. Saturday at Mariuci Arena. The pre-game show starts twenty minutes before each contest.

Friday's game one saw the Huskies do something they haven't been able to do a lot this year, come back and win after falling behind early. UND's Ashley Furia scored early in the 2nd period to put Nodak up by one; but the Huskies answered back halfway through the period when senior captain Felicia Nelson was forced a turnover and put the puck five-hole on UND goalie Jorid Dogfinrud. Less than six minutes later, SCSU first year defense Lisa Martinson fired a wrist shot from the high point on the power play into the back of the net for her first career goal. That gave the Huskies a 2-1 lead and they would hold onto it winning by the same score.
Game two was just as exciting as another freshman, Alex Nelson, scored for SCSU giving the Huskies an early lead at the Ralph Englestad Arena. Nelson's power play goal was her second of the season. North Dakota would come back to tie it as a freshman of their own, Holly Perkins, was able to put a wrist shot past Husky goalie Ashley Nixon. After five scoreless minutes of OT, the teams would go to a shootout. Nixon stopped all four UND shooters and Caitlin Hogan netted the winner in the shootout to complete the sweep. SCSU is now 9-10-5 overall and 6-9-3-2 in the WCHA. The Huskies will head to the Kohl Center in Madison, Wisconsin this weekend to take on the Badgers. Game time for both games is 2:07 pm and they can be heard online at kvsc.org with Matt Bishop having the call.

The success for Heather Miller of the St. Cloud State track and field team this past weekend did not go unrecognized as she was named Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference field athlete of the week. Miller, a 2009 All American, won the long jump with a distance of just under 19 feet and also won the 60 meter hurdles with a time of 9.13 seconds.

The Saint Cloud State women’s hockey team is working hard at practice this week preparing for the first WCHA series of the second half of the season. The Huskie travel to Grand Forks this weekend to take on the University of North Dakota in the first of two straight road series. UND is struggling so far on the year, as they are 3-10-0-1 in conference play. The Huskies meanwhile are coming off of two ties in the Easton Holiday Showcase against Providence and top ranked Mercyhurst.
SCSU’s senior captain Felicia Nelson notched 6 goals in the Showcase and now leads the nation with 18 on the season. She has been helped in the scoring department by the rest of her top line, seniors Caitlin Hogan and Holly Roberts. Hogan and Roberts are tied for the team lead in points with 28.

Saint Cloud continued to roll this last weekend with two more victories and a sweep of Michigan Tech. The Saint Cloud Huskies pushed their winning streak to four games and although the team didn't look great at times, they still managed to get two more wins over the last place team in the conference.
Criag Gaudet and Tony Mosey notched three points each on Friday and two goals by Garrett Raboin on Saturday lifted the Huskies on the weekend. The team also added 5 powerplay goals on the weekend which elevated their PP mark to over 20%.
Dan Dunn got the start and win on Friday which was his third in a row and Mike Lee got the nod on Saturday which was his first action since returning with a gold medal from the World Juniors Tournament with team USA.
St.Cloud is currently ranked at 14th in the national polls and will travel to #17 Quinnipiac this weekend in non-conference action. The Huskies return home on the 22th to play a home and home with the University of Minnesota. Listen to KVSC for coverage of both games against the Gophers.

What will be the Saint Cloud State men’s basketball team’s New Years resolution this year? How about keep doing what they’re doing. The Huskies closed out 2009 with their sixth straight win as they took down the University of Sioux Falls 78-46 at Halenbeck Hall. SCSU stymied the Sioux Falls offense as they held them to 29 percent shooting and broke a school record with 15 blocks in the game. On the offensive side of the ball the Huskies had four players score in double figures and shot over 50 percent from three point range. Sophomore Brett Putz led the Huskies with 19 points as he shot 5 of 8 from beyond the arc.
Saint Cloud is now 9-2 overall as they wrap up non-conference play. The Northern Sun Conference schedule starts this coming Saturday as the Huskies travel to the state’s capitol to take on the Golden Bears of Concordia-St. Paul. Tip-off for that one is scheduled for 4 pm.

It was a weekend of sweeps for the Saint Cloud State basketball teams this last weekend but not the one the women's team liked. The women were upended by Minnesota State-Moorehead 74-62 on Friday and then by Minnesota-Crookston 80-61 on Saturday.
The Huskies were lead in scoring both nights by Becca Friestleben who collected 33 points on the weekend and Talisha Barlow also added 24 in the games. Saint Cloud is now 4-5 on the year with a 1-3 mark in the conference as they continue to mature with their young lineup in NSIC play.
The men on the other hand who have 4 of their top 5 scorers back from last season took both games this weekend to improve to 6-2 on the season with a 3-1 record in the conference. Brett Putz, Taylor Witt and Matt Schneck (Sh-neck) continue to contribute each night as the Huskies are still currently ranked in the top 25 in Division II basketball.
Both the men and women are in action at home this Wednesday night while the men follow up with another contest on Thursday.

It was one of the more entertaining games in recent memory on Friday night at the National Hockey Center between Colorado College and Saint Cloud State but it was a letdown on Saturday that will ultimately leave a bad taste in the mouths of the Huskies.
Saint Cloud rallied down 3-0 on Friday night and scored a shorthanded goal by Brian Volpei late in the 3rd period to draw a 4-4 tie with the Tigers. Saint Cloud was down 4-2 in the 3rd until a goal by Garrett Roe drew the Huskies within one. Brian Volpei then ignited the crowd when he came out of the box and stripped a C.C. player with the puck and scored on a breakaway goal.
The Huskies killed off a 5 on 3 power play and a 5 minute major penalty in the 3rd to keep things status quo and eventually drawing the tie.
The emotions unfortunately didn't carry over for the Huskies on Saturday as SCSU was scored on early and often. C.C. scored within the 1st minute of the 1st period and went on to beat the Huskies 4-1.
Saint Cloud still sits at 19th in the nation after the weekend and is off until January 2nd and 3rd when they continue their home stand against Brown University. Both games start at 6:07 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday night and KVSC is providing all of the coverage from this non-conference matchup.

Friday afternoon it was SCSU who struck first as Felicia Nelson netted her tenth goal of the season with a backhand move to beat Buckeye goaltender Chelsea Knapp. Ohio State would score two unanswered goals to make it a 2-1 hockey game before Nelson struck again, this time on the power play. The game would stay knotted up through overtime and Holly Roberts was the lone goal scorer in the shootout and Ashley Nixon turned away all three Buckeye shooters, giving the Huskies the win. Roberts assisted on both of Nelson’s goal so she would stand at 99 career points heading into game two.
Game two between the teams was a different story as it was the Buckeyes jumping out to the early lead. Hokey Langan took a loose puck in the crease and put it past Nixon to make it 1-0 OSU. Natalie Spooner would put Ohio State up 2-0 in the second period with a rebound goal. The Huskies fought back however as Felicia Nelson would net her third goal of the weekend on a laser pass from Roberts on a power play. The assist was Roberts’ 100th career point, becoming only the third Husky to reach the century mark.

Coming off the first sweep of the season last weekend, the St.Cloud State Men's Hockey team is looking to continue its march of the WCHA standings. St.Cloud now ranked 17th in the nation hosts #6 Colorado College this weekend in a pivotal conference matchup.
The Tigers are currently league leaders in power-play and special teams net, along with being one of the best scoring teams in the conference. St.Cloud is looking to combat this with more aggressive defensive play and another strong showing from freshman goalie, Mike Lee. Lee picked up his first road victories of the year against Alaska Anchorage last week after starting both games due to an injury to the other goalie he was splitting time with, in Dan Dunn. Dunn was limited in practice this week and Lee was taking most of the time on the rink. If Lee does start both games, it will be the first time a goalie would have started both games in back to back series this season.
The battle of nationally ranked teams can be heard here on KVSC this weekend with games slated to start at 7:07 p.m. both Friday and Saturday nights. Your sound alternative will also be broadcasting the women's games this weekend with a 2:07 p.m. start on Friday and then 1:07 p.m. on Saturday against Ohio State.
