Hockey Day Minnesota brings high turnout

in News/Sports by

On Saturday, Jan. 20 the festivities for the eleventh annual Hockey Day Minnesota were held in St. Cloud to much fanfare as students and community members alike banned together for a common bond. Crowds occupied the stands most of the day and while it was “Hockey Day,” they all chanted ‘Skol’ in support of the Vikings game in Philadelphia happening the following day. For the nightcap, the slotted game was the Centennial Cougars facing-off against the Moorhead Spuds, as seats were packed to the brim. However, most people ended up looking at the jumbotron as there were not many seats available. A lack of seating resulted in people sitting in areas where views were obstructed; showing just how dedicated the fans really were. Outside the rink was a tiny fair-like village packed with food trucks and vendors where game-goers could buy food and beverages. Toward the end of the night,…

in Sports by

They St. Cloud State Women’s Hockey Team has shown that they are a team to beat since coming into the second half of this season. As they skated into Friday afternoon’s game against Minnesota Duluth, the Huskies have earned three wins, one of them in an exhibition match up, since coming off of the college hockey break.   The Huskies wasted no time in Friday’s first period as Laura Kluge lit the lamp thirty-seven seconds into the game. The Bulldogs wouldn’t respond until there was just under five minutes to go in the second period, as Katerina Mrazova netted one to tie the game a one a piece. Hallie Theodosopolus was the hero of the night for St. Cloud State as she added two goals to her stats sheet in the third period. One was on the power play, and the other was the game winner with less than three minutes…

in SCSU Sports/Sports by

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…

In a high-scoring, back-and-forth game Saturday night against Alaska-Fairbanks, late goals from Ryan Poehling and Nick Poehling propelled the Huskies to a 5-4 overtime victory. Trailing by a goal late in the game, Ryan Poehling netted his first goal of the season to send the game into overtime, leading to the game-winning goal from his brother, Nick, just minutes in. The third Poehling brother, Jack, would get the assist on the game-winner. St. Cloud State head coach Bob Motzko pointed out how the Poehling brothers came up big for the Huskies when they needed to. Nick Poehling, who scored the game-winning goal for the Huskies, mentioned how the game was full of ups and downs. “Just a roller coaster of emotions… you feel like you’re on top of the world and then you crash down a little bit,” said Nick. Throughout the game, there were five lead changes, as well…

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. It was the underdog Huskies who got on the board first, as quarterback Nate Meyer found receiver John Pass who got behind the defense for a 72 yard touchdown reception, his fifth of the year to give the Huskies an early 7-0 lead. Meyer threw for 175 yards in the game with two touchdowns and…

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…

Huskies lose in blowout to in-state rival Minnesota State

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…
