As xulapaul predicted last season, Midwest defeats Minnesota, 6-3.
Midwest was fortunate to catch Minnesota in an off-year, of which plenty was written about on MIAC's CC in the preseason. But, we will be back for the trophy in two seasons.

6. Adrian at Hobart and William Smith (51-54)
7. St. Lawrence at Albion
8. Marian at Skidmore (46-65)
9. Hamilton at Kalamazoo (76-62)
Did Upstaters have a lot of anger built up from all the ridicule they received following the last two season's sub-par performances? Because they certainly used Michigan as a punching bag last night, defeating them 8-1. Welcome back dominant Upstate of old. We didn't miss you.
Michigan can thank coach Sim AI for gift-wrapping their only win. Perhaps Upstate can persuade St. Lawrence to fire coach Sim AI (reportedly the worst coach in the history of HD) in the offseason. And perhaps it's time for Michigan to start worrying. Back-to-back 8-1 defeats in the Shootout. Not pretty...
Next season Upstate will face Midwest in the Championship.
Michigan will face Minnesota in the Consolation.
Thanks again for the participation!
