  1. Irony will be a back-to-back national championship for this UND team. They have surprised for the past few weeks. Beating DU was huge. Beating UMD would also be huge as we really have struggled to even be in games against UMD. Against DU, a little luck at certain times combined with focused play went a long way to the 1-0 verdict. Hats off to the boys.
