    But have they ever played a team as fast as Geneseo? Fast teams tend to force penalties as the opposition tries to slow them down.

    Re: NCAA Semifinal #1 Norwich v Geneseo

    Based upon Geneseo's body of work this year, Norwich needs to score the first two goals to give them the best chance of winning...if Genny scores the first two goals, better warm up the bus...IMHO. FYI I am pulling for the team who's SID wears Hunter Green and Yellow Gold under the colors of his employer...to keep them closer to his heart.

    Agree don't think playing from behind vs. Genny is a good idea,for that matter starting the game 0-0 is not that good of an idea as well..maybe some tomfoolery before the game may help

    Re: NCAA Semifinal #1 Norwich v Geneseo

    I haven't seen Geneseo. When two teams get to this point, a prediction about who will rule the roost is on thin ice at best.

    Norwich has defensive strength. Norwich has offensive control for long stretches. Norwich plays an amazing small game. Norwich doesn't take penalties. Norwich can force the flow of the play on a power play. Norwich has one of the best defenders on the power play between the pipes. It's what Norwich does game in and game out. Wear you down, find their spot, and make it happen. Winning out in the NEHC from December until now is a major accomplishment but you're not done until your done.

    Geneseo? The same I read. Two teams looking in the mirror, microscopic differences creates an epic match-up! You don't bang heads with SUNYAC or NEHC teams and not have a battle scar or two. You're not done until you are done.

    Get caught up in the hype of this game, I think it will be one that will be remembered as a classic. My prediction is the winner will force the first d-zone turn over in OT, however long it takes.

    Who gets to the finals will be another chapter for either team. I know both schools will be proud of the outcome. Being in the final four is an amazing accomplishment.

    From a NU fan, thanks coaches and players for a kick *** year!

    Geneseo? Run the SUNYAC table with a single tie against #4 Oswego from first half until now demands respect. You've had a kick *** year! All you want to be is part of the party of four at the end of the year. You're there and it is well deserved.

    Both teams are there so drop the puck, have fun, and win or lose, your fans are proud of what you have accomplished.

    Re: NCAA Semifinal #1 Norwich v Geneseo

    In 2017, Norwich had speed that Trinity couldn't match. Speed wreaks havoc in the defensive zone. Both teams have speed. I have seen teams have linear speed go nowhere. Who hounds the puck on the forecheck and forces d-zone turnovers will win the small game, leading to success to the big game. Size has no importance if you cant slow down the opposition forecheck with a compact break out. It takes 2 or more passes to get out of the d-zone and I have seen Norwich break up movement out on the first pass or channel around the net. Sound like Geneseo has the same passion for creating a turnover.

    As the lower seed, we can be thankful that Norwich should be wearing the green camos, not the white ones.

    We won the title in 2017 with the camos, and we're undefeated in the second half wearing almost exclusively camos. So perhaps I should be more thankful for them.

    Yup. Genny is the deserved favorite, but while NU is the underdog I don't view them as a big underdog. These teams seem very similar, as you detailed.

    Iíd love for them to kill the camo. I get the desire to engage the military heritage, but Iíll love maroon and gold forever, thatís the identity I know.

    This game, rawr, NU is definitely the dog.

    That 2017 Norwich team was STUPID fast. They dominated that title game - Beginning to end. But I feel Geneseo is just as fast and aggressive.

    Seeing all three games Oswego vs Geneseo many of us are convinced they are the best in the east. I have seen Norwich only on TV. Should be great game to watch. I have not explored the streaming , or in fact is the NCAA going to actually televised any of these games

    Geneseo also lost to Plattsburgh back in November on the road, their only loss. They fell behind, 3-0, and came back late with two extra attacker goals to make it 3-2.

    Ron, as you know, the camo thing is not a tradition, but started as a third jersey and for some reason stuck around. When NU was an all military school it was maroon and gold. I'm not a fan - when watching on line, it is very hard to see the numbers on either shade of camo. I hate the look - makes them look like a bunch of duck hunters. The only third jersey that I hate more is the Avalanche's choir robe blue things.

    On to the game itself - I think a lot of people are missing the way the Cadets put things together after a slow start. There was certainly an adjustment period with the new coach, but I think it will be a lot more competitive than the SUNYAC drum-beaters think it will be. I'd expect a one goal game.

    Name me one SUNYAC drum beater who says this is going to be a blowout?

    Yes, the camos... as much as PuckVoice and I hate them... are Norwich's secret weapon.... they make opponents dizzy but our players are used to them...
