Fresh off top ranked sweep UMD men’s hockey skates into No. 10 Western Michigan

Duluth morphed into upset city last weekend as the unranked University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) men’s hockey team swept then-number one ranked St. Cloud State University.

Skating in as underdogs the Bulldogs put away 11 goals in 5-3 then 6-3 wins, with four coming from Ben Steeves, while only allowing six goals to earn their third win in a row.

“It’s always nice to be the underdog, we’re always the underdog. We win three, four, five championships we’re still going to be an underdog in a lot of games. We were this weekend, but our guys played well. Again there’s still areas to get better at,” head coach Scott Sandelin said.

However the road doens’t get any easier from here.

This weekend the Bulldogs (12-13-1) will host another top ranked team in number 10 Western Michigan Univeristy. Puck drop is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday and 6 p.m. Saturday at AMSOIL Arena.
