Huskies Look To Be Turning Season Around
The last two games in October hopefully give an insight to what November will bring. The Huskies came from Fridays game with an impressive 9-2 win over Marquette University. During that game a player from each team was disqualified; #41 Brian Allen [Northern Illinois University] and #12 Sean McNulty [Marquette University]. Marquette would suffer a similar fate on Saturday with a 6-4 win by NIU. Saturdays win gave the Huskies a 3 game winning streak, their longest this season. They will be looking to extend this streak with their 3 game weekend coming up.
