Scottie Stone led the Huskies on Friday with 20 points and 8 rebounds. Gage Davis (15), Brindley Theisen (14), and Jon Averkamp (10) also scored in double figures for the Huskies.

However, the defense was again the difference maker. Upper Iowa trailed the Huskies at the half 43-42, but scored 62 points in the second period on 59% shooting from the field and 50% from downtown to get the win.

With the losses the Huskies are now 11-13 on the year and 8-10 in NSIC play. They return to Halenbeck Hall this weekend for the final home games of the regular season against Northern State University and Minnesota State University-Moorhead. Tipoff is at 8 p.m. Friday and 6 p.m. Saturday.

St. Cloud State Baseball Picks Up Three Wins on Opening Weekend
Brandon Arnold hit a home run Friday to help the Huskies pick up their first win of 2016.

The St. Cloud State baseball team traveled to Houston, Texas to take part in the Minute Maid Stadium Tournament. The Huskies played in three games over the course of the three day tournament. They took on St. Mary’s University (TX) Friday, Tarleton State University Saturday, and the University of Central Missouri Sunday.

Brandon Arnold led the Huskies to a win in a high scoring affair on Friday with four hits (including a home run) and three RBI. The Huskies would score three times in the 1st inning, four in the 4th, three in the 5th, and two in the 6th and 7th to pick up the wire to wire season opening win 14-10.

Saturday’s game was another high scoring affair with the Huskies recording eight runs in the opening frame. They’d score two more runs in the 2nd and 3rd innings to coast to the 12-3 victory over Tarleton State.

The Huskies would complete the weekend sweep with a grind-it-out win over the University of Central Missouri 2-1. Neither team would score until the 6th inning when Zach Hoffmann made it home to give the Huskies the 1-0 edge. The Huskies scored again in the 7th inning to secure the win.

The Huskies will not play again until the Tucson Invitational in Tucson, Arizona which starts March 7th at 4 p.m.

St. Cloud State Softball Opens 2016 At 4-0
SCSU Softball Team

The St. Cloud State softball team picked up 4 straight wins against Dakota Wesleyan University to open the 2016 regular season.

Game one of Friday’s double-header got out of hand quickly as the Huskies offense exploded for 7 runs in the first two innings of 2016. The Tigers quieted the Huskies sticks in the third before allowing 6 runs in the 4th innings. The Tigers two runs in the top of the 5th weren’t enough to hold off the mercy rule, giving the Huskies the 13-2 win.

Game two of Friday’s double-header was a little closer than the season opener. The Huskies got on the board early once again with two runs in the 1st inning. However, the Tigers would record three scores in the top of the 3rd inning to take their first lead of the year. The Huskies responded immediately with a huge 8 run 3rd inning. They wouldn’t score again, but wouldn’t need to as they held on for the 10-7 win.

Saturday’s opening game could only be described as a thriller. The Tigers scored once in the 2nd inning and twice in the 5th inning while not allowing the Huskies to score in the first five frames. The Huskies finally got on the board in the bottom of the 6th inning, but allowed another Tiger run in the top of the 7th, making the score 4-1 heading into the bottom of the 7th and final inning.

The Tigers quickly recorded an out before Taige Puetz started the Huskies miraculous comeback with a single down the 3rd base line. Rebecca Harps would triple later in the inning to bring Puetz home for the Huskies second run of the game. Harps would later score courtesy of Libby Bingham’s hit to make the score 4-3.

With two outs, Veronica Wold doubled to keep the Huskies alive. Samantha Boettcher would come into run at 2nd base for Wold and would scamper home off of an Abby Bunnell double to left field to send the game into extra innings.

In the bottom of the 10th inning the score was still tied 4-4 when Abby Bunnell single to left field and then stole 2nd base. Directly after that, Tricia DeBoer reached 2nd base on a Tiger error, moving Bunnell to 3rd base. Alyssa Coletto would then bunt for the Huskies, but Bunnell was thrown out at home. Luckily for the Huskies DeBoer never stopped running on the play and, amid the confusion, slid home to give the Huskies the 5-4 victory.

The Huskies would close out the weekend sweep with an 11-3 win courtesy of 6 runs in the bottom of the 5th inning.

The Huskies are now 4-0 on the year and will be back in action in the Husky Dome next weekend against the University of Jamestown Friday and UW-Parkside Saturday. First pitch on Friday’s double-header is set for 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday’s double-header will start at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
