The runner from Thompson, N.D., easily defended his Wild Hog Half Marathon title on a sunny, breezy morning in south Grand Forks. Monson finished with a time of 1 hour, 10 minutes, 37 seconds, blowing away the rest of the field.

DULUTH, Minn. – Midway through the second period, the UND bench was put on the AmsOil Arena’s kiss cam. So, Drake Caggiula leaned over and did his best to plant one on teammate Derek Rodwell. The crowd roared.

DULUTH — Zane Gothberg earned his first-career shutout Friday night, but he didn’t have much to say about it. There was a bigger picture to look at. After a trying first half of the season, UND surged into a first-place tie in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference standings thanks to a 3-0 victory over Minnesota Duluth in AmsOil Arena.
