RUSS HONS: Photo Gallery — University Of North Dakota Vs. American International University

The University of North Dakota men’s hockey team used a four-goal first period outburst in the span of just over seven minutes en route to a 5-1 win over American International University on Friday night in Fargo’s Scheels Arena to advance to the NCAA Midwest Region championship tonight against National Collegiate Hockey Conference rival the University of Minnesota-Duluth. UMD gained the finals without having to play its semifinal game after the University of Michigan was disqualified for COVID-19 positive tests. The Fighting Hawks (22-5-1) were led by Jasper Weatherby and Collin Adams, who each scored two goals. Grant Mismash had the other UND goal. Tobias Fladeby scored the only goal for the Yellow Jackets (15-4) late in the third period. UND goalie Adam Scheel stopped 24 shots, while AIU netminder Stefano Durante had nine saves before being pulled in favor of Jake Kucharski, who stopped 19 shots. UND is seeking its ninth NCAA title.(Check out more photos from Russ Hons here.)
