Monday Wrap-Up 10/30

This will be a regular thing – looking back on the weekend’s action.

A couple of interesting scores and interesting turnarounds in weekend series:

  • MSOE put up a shockingly crooked number on Lake Forest on Friday, bombing the Foresters 9-0, including a hat-trick from junior Blair Hanberg. But the next night, Lake Forest goalie Scott Campbell made 44 saves to help his squad rebound for a 4-3 win.
  • In Geneseo, Neumann won Friday’s battle of the Knights with a 6-2 win, but Geneseo turned things around on Saturday, winning 5-3.

A few teams that are off to good starts:

  • Fredonia – Pounded Marian 8-2 and tied St. Norbert 2-2. Will that be enough to get the Blue Devils into the Top 15?
  • Wisconsin-Eau Claire – Opened with a 3-2 win over Wisconsin-River Falls, mostly thanks to 42 saves from Ryan Mensing.
  • Oswego – Is already 4-0 including a weekend sweep of fourth-ranked Elmira.
  • Plattsburgh – Beat travel partner Potsdam 7-1 and played a competitive game against the US Under-18 team.
  • Cortland – The Red Dragons are 3-0. They won four games all last season.

And some teams that are not:

  • Marian – Not a good trip to Western New York.
  • Potsdam – An 0-4 start, outscored 22-7.
