Battle of the dogs

in SCSU Sports/Sports by

The number 17 ranked University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs football team came into Husky Stadium Saturday afternoon to take on the St. Cloud State Huskies. The Bulldogs, winners of nine straight games, were looking to improve their 9-1 overall record, and 6-0 NSIC North record. The Huskies, with an overall record of 5-5, and an NSIC North record of 4-2, were looking to end the season with an overall record above .500. The Bulldogs had high stakes, as they were looking at a possible playoff berth in the NCAA Division II Playoffs with a win.

Huskies fall in WCHA Opener

in SCSU Sports/Sports by

It would be a tough test for the St. Cloud State Huskies right off the bat to start the season, a battle against USCHO’s number one team, the Wisconsin Badgers. The Huskies were swept by the Badgers last season, being outscored 13 to zero in four games. Things started off slow with both teams showing some rust after the time during the off-season. St. Cloud would attempt to strike first getting a shot on goal against Badger netminder Ann-Renée Desbiens, who would be a brick wall all game long. The Badgers would get the last laugh however, when a centering pass from Sarah Nurse to Sydney McKibbon, who would rip a shot that would find twine – putting the Badgers up 1-0 in the first. St. Cloud goaltender Madeleine Dahl would do her best to stand on her head and keep the Huskies in the game, until one fateful face off. The…

in SCSU Sports/Sports by

With the Huskies coming off a win their last time out against Upper Iowa they would be looking to continue their momentum against the Minnesota State Mankato Mavericks who were coming off a tough loss last week to Bemidji State. You could not write a better script to start the game for the cardinal and black and they would force a three and out on defense to start the game. It only got better as on the first play from scrimmage for the Huskies offense, it was a beautiful pass from quarterback Nate Meyer to Jameson Parsons for 69 yards to put the offense in the redzone. On fourth and eight the Huskies would line up for a field goal, or so everybody thought, the holder Jameson Parsons would put his skills as a former quarterback to use as he would roll out to the right and find linebacker Graham…

in SCSU Sports/Sports by

The St. Cloud State Huskies would start off their 2016-17 campaign with a home game against the Cougars of Sioux Falls, who would be looking to avenge a 36-0 loss last time out. Both offenses got off to a slow start, but it was the visiting Cougars who would get it going first with a touchdown run by quarterback Luke Papilion from three yards out. The Huskies would answer on their next drive. After a couple big plays in the air Jaden Huff would finish off the drive with a two yard scamper. After the initial PAT was no good, a roughing kicker penalty gave the Cardinal and Black another chance they would convert to knot things up at seven a piece. The Cougars would start their next scoring drive off doing themselves no favors by starting things off with a 1st and 35, however they would convert on a…
