Hrenak gets the shutout, Huskies win big

After coming from behind to win their last four games, St. Cloud State took the lead early on and didn’t look back, defeating Duluth 5-0 Saturday night at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. In a game much different from the day before, a shutout from freshman goaltender David Hrenak helped No. 2 St. Cloud State (7-0-0, 2-0-0 NCHC) to a 5-0 victory over No. 8 Duluth (4-4-2, 0-1-0 NCHC) to remain undefeated. Unlike yesterday, it didn’t take long for the scoring to start, as a power play goal from Jacob Benson gave St. Cloud State a 1-0 lead just under 10 minutes into the first period. Moments after killing off a penalty of their own, the Huskies were able to produce a goal with the extra attacker. After catching a pass in the slot from teammate Blake Winiecki, Benson quickly fired a low, blocker-side shot past Shepard, giving him… Keep Reading

A three-goal third period gave the Huskies their fifth straight come-from-behind victory of the season, defeating Duluth in their first inter-conference matchup of the season. In a game filled with power plays, four-on-four action, and over 65 shots, No. 2 St. Cloud State (6-0-0, 1-0-0 NCHC) defeated No. 8 Duluth (4-3-2, 0-1-0 NCHC) 5-3 to remain undefeated. After giving up the lead twice in the second period, St. Cloud State put their foot on the gas pedal and didn’t let up in the third. Midway through the final period, forward Ethan Brodzinski tallied his first goal of the season, ultimately ending up to be the game-winner.

Weekend Recap: Home cooking continues

Friday: In what is seeming to be a recurring theme for the #2/3 St. Cloud State Huskies, they would be working from behind early against the #13/15 Boston College Eagles’ first-ever trip to the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. After falling behind in both games against Alaska-Fairbanks in the previous weekend, the Huskies would find themselves facing a 2-0 deficit in the second against the Eagles after a power play goal in the first from Logan Hutsko just six minutes into the first frame and another goal from Christopher Brown four minutes into the second period. The second goal finally woke the Huskies up as freshman forward Kevin Fitzgerald got St. Cloud on the board midway through the second period for the first collegiate goal of his career. Just a minute and a half later, sophomore forward Jack Poehling knotted his third goal of the season to tie things up at two… Keep Reading

Husky football takes big win over Moorhead

After a record setting offensive explosion for quarterback Dwayne Lawhorn and the Huskies football team, it was back to business for the cardinal and black with another home game against Minnesota State University-Moorhead. Both offenses were stagnant in the first quarter before the Dragons would finally sniff out the end zone in the second quarter. Wide receiver Damon Gibson would find play dirty from one yard out to cap a 13 play, 67 yard drive. After the successful PAT, Moorhead would be leading 7-0. Lawhorn would masterfully lead the Huskies right down the field with a 13 play drive of his own of 77 yards keeping the ball for nearly half the quarter and answer with a touchdown throw to wide receiver Derek Kumerow to knot the game up at seven a piece. It would stay at seven all into halftime when St. Cloud State President Ashish Vaidya had an exciting… Keep Reading

Huskies win home-opener, improve to 2-0 on the season

After a sluggish start, the St. Cloud State University men’s hockey team rallied back, scoring five consecutive goals to beat Alaska-Fairbanks 6-3. In a game where many fans predicted a blowout win, SCSU found themselves down 3-0 late in the first period.

Alaska-Fairbanks took an early lead, scoring at the 1:08 mark of the first period after Kylar Hope buried a rebound into the back of the net following a shot from teammate Colton Leiter.

Huskies’ football makes a statement

With Bemidji State (2-2) winning earlier in the day St. Cloud State’s (3-1) lead in the NSIC North was cut to just a one game lead. A surprising late scratch of sophomore quarterback Dwayne Lawhorn who sat out with a previously unknown shoulder injury saw redshirt freshman Justin Czech get his first career start at Husky Stadium against Augustana University (2-2). The first drive of the game saw the Vikings convert two long third down attempts which helped them get into Husky territory, but the Vikings’ drive stalled and the Huskies came up with a huge fourth down stop. Czech would lean on the strength of his run game, but it was a 19-yard toss to leading Huskies junior receiver John Pass that helped get the ten play, 40-yard drive that would be capped off with a 46-yard field goal to give St. Cloud the 3-0 lead. The ensuing possession for… Keep Reading
