Adrian will drop a little, I would think, after losing to Davenport 4-3 in OT last night. A game they should not have lost (personal commentary there, from the penalty box). They turned around and ripped Davenport 6-2 tonight.

As for Minot State, they had a serious case of bus legs by the time the Sunday game against Adrian came around. They were just out of gas, justifiably so.
