UND Prepares for Rematch with WMU
The Broncos defeated the Fighting Hawks Earlier this season
GRAND FORKS, N.D — North Dakota hockey is back on the road this weekend to face Western Michigan, which is currently ranked ninth in the country and 10th in the pairwise.
It’s the fighting hawks second series against the broncos this season. When they faced each other in November, Western Michigan handed UND two losses, including a shutout defeat in the series opener.
North Dakota remembers those games all too well.
The Fighting Hawks recall it was a time in which the team was not playing its best brand of hockey, but UND feels it has improved since then and is ready for a second shot at the broncos.
“I thought we played a good game on Friday,” head coach Brad Berry said. “They got a fortunate bounce on the first goal and then it was 2-0 empty- netter. I didn’t think we played as well Saturday. I think they played a better game and that was probably one of the games out of all this year that we didn’t bring our best and knowing that we have to go into Lawson, which is always a tough place to play, doesn’t matter who it is, you got to be better right away.”
