RUSS HONS: Photo Gallery — University Of North Dakota Vs. St. Cloud State University

The University of North Dakota men’s hockey team’s quest for landing a spot in the NCAA tournament field took a hit Friday with a 3-2 overtime loss to St. Cloud State University in St. Paul’s Xcel Energy Center in the semifinals of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference Frozen Faceoff. Nick Poehling’s goal 1:47 into overtime gave the Huskies, who already have clinched an NCAA tourney spot, the victory. The Fighting Hawks had come from behind twice to tie the game to send it to overtime. Nick Jones and Jordan Kawaguchi scored for UND, while Patrick Newell and Easton Brodzinski also scored for the Huskies. UND goalie Cam Johnson had 31 saves. SCSU’s David Hrenak stopped 21 shots. Today, UND plays the University of Minnesota-Duluth in the third-place, and St. Cloud meets Denver University in the championship game. (Check out more photos from Russ Hons here.)
