Sunday can be one of two things. It can either be Sunday Funday, or you can possibly get the Sunday Scaries. There’s also the Grammy’s tonight, but there’s a lacrosse game in the afternoon you might want to watch.
Below is today’s Big Board. Clicking on the team name will take you to that team’s homepage. Clicking on the Stream cell will take you to broadcast of that game, while the Live Stats cell will take you to the live stats of that game. To the Big Board!!

Friday, the Blue Devils defeated High Point, 10-5, for their first win of the season. The Panthers made it a 7-5 game entering the fourth quarter, but Duke shut the High Point offense down in the final 15 minutes of the game. Justin Guterding put up a hat-trick and one assist for the Blue Devils, while freshman Joey Manown had two goals and two assists, and is continuing to become a big part of the Duke offense. Fellow freshman Kevin Quigley put up two goals and an assist as well, while Kyle Rowe dominated the face-offs and ground balls department for John Danowski’s squad.

One thing to watch is if Danowski goes with Danny Fowler or Turner Uppgren in net today. Fowler underwent surgery during the offseason, which was why Uppgren was brought in during the second half. I think Fowler might play at the most the entire first half, but I also wouldn’t be shocked if Uppgren plays the entire game and Fowler sits out to rest up for Denver next weekend.
For Cleveland State, it’ll be their second game in program history, and first away contest. They lost to Michigan last weekend inside the Krenzler Dome, 13-8, but showed a ton of promise that most first-year programs usually don’t have. Attackman Tristen Copeland led the way with two goals and an assist, while goaltender Caleb Espinoza made 12 saves in the losing effort. There’s plenty of work for Dylan Sheridan’s crew to do, but the very young Vikings showed plenty of promise in game one. Just like their choice for dinner last night.

Song Of The Day
This is my favorite Earth, Wind & Fire song. Also a very underrated Earth, Wind & Fire song.
That’s it for now. Game starts at 2:30, so there’s plenty of time to get stuff done! I’ll see you out there!!
