A season that started off as 0-3 came full circle last weekend when the Huskies knocked off the number 4 team in the nation MSU-Mankato. The Mavericks came into the game with an undefeated record at 10-0 and were top dogs in the conference but that all came to an end when the clock read 0:00 in the 4th quarter. With 5:15 remaining in the game, the Huskies went on a 10 play, 95-yard scoring drive to capture the lead and victory.
There were many story lines in the game that gave back the "Traveling Training Kit" to Saint Cloud. No bigger was the performance of senior back-up quarterback, Derek Stripling. Stripling who had started only one game before last Saturday, threw for 150 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions while rushing for 97 yards and two scores as well. Stripling who lost out on the starting job to Mitch Watkins two seasons ago, finally got his shot and came through in the end.
Injuries also threw another Husky into the spotlight, and gave the game another big performance. Dante Steward and Jake Machacek were filling in for Brandon Geiss who was out the last few weeks with a broken leg, but it was all Steward when Machacek went down in the 2nd half with an ankle injury. Steward scored the go ahead touchdown with under a minute to go in the game and capped off a game that was back and forth throughout.
The Mavericks had their opportunities but had an uncharacteristic four turnovers in the game including two of them inside the 5 yard line. The biggest defensive play came early in the 4th quarter with the Mavericks leading by one, Ernest Walker was stripped by senior Brian Kampa at the Huskies 1 yard line and was recovered by Saint Cloud.
The win for Saint Cloud pushes their conference record to 7-3 and a resulting tie for 3rd place in the NSIC. It is now up to an NSIC committee to decide what team will play for the Mineral Water Bowl on December 5th. The top team from the NSIC that doesn't make the playoffs plays the top team from the MIAA. Saint Cloud State along with Wayne State and Bemidji State are the top teams to be considered for the honor. Results should be known early in the week.
If it does end up being the last game for Saint Cloud this season, they will have a lot of positives to look back on, including the big upset of MSU. Playing potentially their last games for State were quarterbacks Mitch Watkins, Derek Stripling, tight ends Cody Anderson-Norblom and House Niesche, linebackers Paul Denne and Gyangelo Bradden and defensive back Brian Kampa.

Friday night saw the Saint Cloud State women’s hockey team continue their hot hand on offense and upset the fifth ranked Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs 5-1. Saturday the Bulldogs showed they can put the puck in the net as well, defeating the Huskies 5-0 and earning the split. It was a balanced effort in game one for the Huskies as they were solid on both the offensive and defensive side of the puck. Senior forward Holly Roberts scored her first two goals of the season and three other players lit the lamp for SCSU while junior netminder Ashley Nixon stood tall in net. The Blaine, Minnesota native stopped 31 of 32 Bulldog shots for the win.
Game two saw a different goaltender for the Huskies and a different result as the Bulldogs dominated play from start to finish, winning 5-0. Audrey Cournoyer paced the offensive effort for UMD with three assists and Jennifer Harss stopped all 24 Husky shots for the shutout.

Williams had 7 receptions for 126 yards and the four scores while Jake Machacek and Dante Steward continued to fill in nicely for the injured Brandon Geiss. Machacek averaged close to 9 yards a carry while rushing for 129 yards and a touchdown. Steward chipped in for another score and 98 yards as well.
For the second consecutive week, the Huskies also had a new signal caller under center. Derek Stripling got the start as Mitch Watkins's shoulder was still giving him trouble before the game but the Huskies saw its starter go down again in the first half. Stripling had to come out of the game after he bit hard down on his tongue after a late hit by the Dragons. The injury was severe enough to keep him out of the game as red-shirt freshman Brad Meade came in and perfromed well. Meade was 4-7 on completions for 66 yards and 2 touchdowns. Both Stripling and Watkins are figured to be ready to play come Saturday as the Huskies close out the year with MSU-Mankato at home.
The Huskies now 6-4 overall and 6-3 in the conference host the nationally ranked Mavericks who are 9-0 in the conference and 10-0 overall. KVSC is bringing you coverage of the game on Saturday with the pre-game show starting at 12:40 p.m. and kickoff at 1 p.m.

The St. Cloud State women’s hockey team not only scored a goal in this past weekends series against North Dakota, they got their first WCHA win as well. Friday’s game provided plenty of goals and a thrilling finish. Team captain Felicia Nelson started the scoring in the first period with a power-play goal. The senior’s goal ended a scoring drought for SCSU of over 190 minutes and also stopped a 0-35 skid on the power-play. Another senior would step up big for the Huskies as Meaghan Pezon had a career high day with two goals and two assists. The four-point game is a career high for the Eden Prairie native. St. Cloud trailed 4-3 in the 3rd period before Caitlin Hogan scored to tie it up with less than a minute and a half left. UND would get the last laugh however as they scored in overtime to win 5-4. Kelly Lewis scored the power play winner for North Dakota in the extra period.
Saturday proved to be more of a defensive battle between the teams and SCSU would come out on top. Two more goals by Felicia Nelson and a two point night for Meaghan Pezon helped the Huskies to a 3-2 victory. St. Cloud State is now 2-6 in the overall and 1-5 in conference.

The St. Cloud State soccer team ended its home schedule with a bang this past weekend as they defeated Northern State on Saturday and the University of Mary on Sunday.

Sunday saw the Huskies celebrate senior day and send their seniors off with a win. SCSU senior goalkeeper Elizabeth Kelly recorded her sixth shutout and eighth win of the season as she made one save in the game.

Adding injury to insult is how last Saturday's game aganist Minnesota-Duluth will be remembered for the Saint Cloud State Football team. Sophomore Brandon Geiss was hurt on a first half carry and was out the rest of the game. Coach Underwood confirmed today that his star running back is likely be out for the rest of the year with a broken fibula.
Geiss who was averaging 83 yards a game with a 4.7 yards a carry average coming into last week's game is a big lose for a team that is currently 4-4 on the season. Geiss's six touchdowns will be missed but also his ability to pick up the blitz and zone protection.
With just three games remaining on the schedule it is figured that the team will mostly likely not push the matter to much and turn to two other running backs that have performed fairly well this season. Jake Machacek and Dante Steward will share the load in Geiss's absence. They have combined for a 80-yard average a game with a combined 4 touchdowns.
The Huskies will see how the new lineup looks come this Saturday when they take on the University of Mary at 2:30 p.m. at Husky Stadium. Listen to the game live here on KVSC with the pregame show starting at 2:10 p.m.
