Schmidt This is a big one.
Any time you can play for first place in the WIAC
it's a pretty big accomplishment, it's a pretty big
opportunity and to have that chance right off the
bat against a really good River Falls team I just
couldn't be happier with our guys effort.
Krien Winning fixes a lot of things.
It makes you a lot happier after games it makes you
a lot happier going out to practice every week makes
you a lot more eager to put in that extra rep do that

Winona State's 4-1.
Well it's great.
We kind of made it hard on ourselves, but we played
a full game and that's the result.

a full game and I think we did pretty well today.

They're ready to play, they're ready to win.
