Woes continue

Last night the Sioux fell to Cornell 2-1 to earn a split on the weekend.

After taking it to Cornell 7-3 on Friday night, the offense was pretty flat Saturday night. An apparent goal by Ryan Duncan was disallowed because forward Chris VandeVelde was called for goaltender interference. Cornell scored later in the 2nd period and took a 1-0 lead into the 3rd period. Hextall tied it up 1-1 late in the 3rd, but Cornell responded with a PP goal and finished off the Sioux.

Again, scratching my head. I wish I had answers. I really do. I think the team has the talent to make a run, and the goaltender to make a run, but right now the inconsistencies the Sioux are having are unreal. And sitting right now at 5-8-1 doesn't look too good.

A couple of years ago after we were swept by MTU the Sioux were 7-10-1 so 5-8-1 is close to that.

Too bad we don't get to play MTU 4 times this season. :)
