I just finished watching the Colgate Raiders beat the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers in a hockey shoot-out. The regular game score was 2-2 but ‘gate won the shoot-out 2-1. It plays Ferris State for the Championship tomorrow afternoon. My daughter, Caroline, is a Colgate Junior and is now celebrating this victory at Buffalo Wild Wings near the arena. I am thankful that her big sister, Natalie, is also there.
This was a part of the Mariucci Classic tournament that has some of the nation’s best teams. Minnesota wanted very badly to win this tourney. The last tournament I saw involving the U was the Dairy Queen Classic last March at the Metrodome. In the first game there, Dartmouth beat the U 10-1. I mentioned that just because I love to mention that. Cheers
