Randy Lundblad scored two goals and dished out six assists, while Tim Nelson had three goals and five assists. Travis Solomon recorded 24 saves in goal for the Orange. The win started a seven-game winning streak that culminated with the school’s first national championship.
In 1985, Tom Korrie scored five goals and dished out two assists, and goalkeeper Tom Nims made 22 saves to lead the Orange past Rutgers, 15-6.
