Congrats to the team on hanging in there during a back and forth contest and getting the win.
The Seawolves cannot lose to AIC tomorrow afternoon. To do so would be crush the non-conference part of the season. We need the momentum going into WCHA play.
RANT: Seem like everytime we're in Fairbanks the updates for Live Box Scores and the posting of the final box score takes FOREVER (an hour and a half). UA_ needs to find another volunteer or hire someone or god only knows what but this waiting and waiting and waiting for box scores whenever we visit that sorrowful town is ridiculous.
