Pointers get set to face off against St. Norbert in NCHA semis
By Russ Owens
(WAOW)- The Pointer men's hockey team finds itself in unfamiliar territory, as tomorrow night they will play in the NCHA semifinal game for the first time since 2004.
But they do face a familiar opponent in perenial power st. Norbert, who knocked the Pointers out in the quarterfinals a year ago.
The Green Knights also beat Point all three times they faced off this season.
Says Head Coach Wil Nichol, "We're playing one of the best teams in the country and they're tough at home, theyre 10-1-1 at home and they've outscored us 14-4 this season, so it's gonna take our best effort to come out on top tomorrow night."
Says Freshman Goalie Nick Graves, "It's gonna be tough, but I think we're up to the challenge, we've come together as a team throughout the last part of the season, so I think we're ready to take them on."
