Miami Rebounds 6-2 Over North Dakota

Jonathan Daniel

#1 Ranked Miami rebounds against #6 North Dakota with a score of 6-2, earning a weekend split.

With Miami's Ryan McKay playing as a human-wall in net, the Redhawks earn a split with North Dakota in the first NCHC conference battle in the history of the new league.

After falling to North Dakota 4-2 on Friday night, Miami switched a few things up, most noticeably their netminder, and responded with an impressive win and earning a split in the first weekend of conference play.

Miami, who held a 5-0 lead until late in the second period, received goals from Cody Murphy, Riley Barber, and a hat trick from Blake Coleman all before North Dakota's Colten St. Clair could add a tally to the scoreboard for his own team.

Gage Ausmus earned his first point of his collegiate career, scoring a period after St. Clair, but Miami captain Austin Czarnik scored the final goal of the night, which happened to put the Redhawks in front of North Dakota, 6-2.

North Dakota has next weekend off, but hosts St. Cloud State following the break, while Miami travels to Providence College next weekend.
