In the pre-nationals tune up the Cyclones outscored Minnesota's ACHA Division 2 team 18-1 over the weekend. It was 10-0 on Friday night and 8-1 Saturday. The Cyclones saw a season high 1000 people for the Friday night contest, but the weather was too much to handle for folks trying to make it on Saturday.

Trent Baker and Christian Johansson combined for the shut out on Friday and Bill Adolph notched a hat-trick. The team looks great heading into the national tournament this week in Youngstown, Ohio.

The team will leave tomorrow night at 10 PM and get into Youngstown around 11 AM the next day. Their first round match-up is against West Chester University. The game will be Wednesday night at 8 PM EST. You can check out the webcast for that game at achahockey.org. There will be live streaming audio AND video! So you can catch all of the action.

I'll be reporting from Youngstown on a daily basis! So make sure you check back at CF for all of your Cyclone Hockey updates! Thanks to everyone who came out to the games this season!
