On Friday night, the Dutchmen defeated the Huskies 4-3 on Cole Maier's goal at 0:23 of overtime. Brett Supinski had two goals and an assist on the night, while sophomore goalie Darion Hanson stopped 37 shots in net. 

Union finished off the weekend sweep on Saturday with a 3-1 win. The Union defense was in lockdown mode as they blocked 16 shots and Hanson stopped 31 shots in net. Sebastian Vidmar had two goals in the win for the Dutchmen.
