(Crookston, Minn.) – The University of Minnesota, Crookston Men’s Hockey team scored a goal in each period of the game and rode solid goaltending on their way to a 3-1 victory over the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) tonight at the Crookston Civic Arena.

U of M, Crookston’s Jacob Schira (Fr, G, Bloomfield Hills, Mich.) was stellar in net once again stopping 33 of 34 shots he faced.
