10/13/19 Dekalb, IL The D1 Huskies fell to the University of Iowa Hawkeyes this past weekend while Iowa picked up the 6-1 win.
Starting off the game Iowa took the lead. With less than three minutes left in the first period Freshman forward Nick Gonzalez put it in the back of the net leaving the Huskies down 1-2. After the second period the Huskies were unable to score leaving the score 6-1. Sophomore goaltender Brian Eisele was in net making 51 saves on 57 shots. The Huskies had a few players who were out due to injuries which allowed the team to work together on the defense side.
NIU will have a few weeks to practice before the next games. The Huskies will be on the road November 1 and 2. They will play Waldorf University for MCH conference games at Albert Lea City Arena.
