– Anchorage –
Alaska had faced Wisconsin 7 times previously, and had lost all seven, but the teams had not faced each other since 1993.
Friday night, the Nanooks played a great defensive game, giving up only 14 shots on goal, in pulling out a 1-0 win over the Badgers.
Anchorage also looked good in a 3-1 win over Maine.
Not a bad night for the two Alaska programs.
