HOW IT HAPPENED

The Regents didn't improve on those numbers one bit, getting blanked while failing to get a single shot off in the ballgame. As for the Raiders? They could have lent RU some of theirs and still come away with the win. MSOE had a total of 51 attempts, eight of which found the back of the net. Six different Raiders scored, starting with Caitie LeVasseur who earned 11 points in three games this week, and ending with Hailey Malloy finding the scoresheet for the first time since September 4th. All 22 Red & White players saw the field as MSOE coasts to their easiest conference win of the season.

- Jeray Riffel is winding down her final year in a Red & White uniform, but she's still making a name for herself at MSOE. Riffel is now ninth with eight assists in a single season, 7th all-time in assists with 20, and is just seven points away from cracking that categories top ten.
WHO'S ON DECK
Wednesday's game against Concordia-Wisconsin will have huge playoff implications moving forward towards the NACC tournament. A win would give CUW three loses compared to the Raiders one loss and one tie, while a loss would mean the Red & White would most likely earn no higher than a third seed in the playoffs. That game happens in Mequon at 3:30 pm.
