Brotherhood upsets No. 4 St. Cloud State

The Miami University hockey team broke out of its tailspin in a big way Friday night, besting No. 4 St. Cloud State University in a 4-3 home victory.

Despite allowing an early goal, the Brotherhood bounced back with three unanswered tallies, starting with junior forward and captain Austin Czarnik, who extended his scoring streak to six games.

The biggest story of the night, however, was the return of junior forward Blake Coleman, who has been out of the lineup with an injury since Dec. 6. Coleman potted the final two goals to boost the RedHawks to their second win in 2014.

"I had a lot of fun," Coleman said. "I was just trying to get my legs back under me more than anything. But the team stepped up, there was a lot of belief in the locker room tonight."

The much-needed win improves the RedHawks' record to 11-15-3, and no win has been as big for the Brotherhood this year as this one.

"I felt like our team took a step forward tonight," head coach Enrico Blasi said. "They're [St. Cloud] not a top team in the country for nothing ... we played hard. I thought our demeanor was good tonight. Sports is funny, isn't it? You can be down in the dumps one night and the next you can get results."

Miami will look to complete the sweep of top-seeded National Collegiate Hockey Conference rival St. Cloud State Saturday night at 7:05 at the Goggin Ice Center.
