Winner will face winner of Liberty/Chagrin Falls for the D2 Championship.
US has the kind of goalie (Haas) who can keep you in games. I'm not sure about their defenders. I played their and graduated in '04 and we had a lot of young talent in the program then, so I imagine that coupled with Grabner and Kestner would be enough to keep them in this game at least.
Hoover is going back to Dublin...

7-1 Hoover @ half, led as 10-2 at one point. Final 12-5. University started playing "dirty" knocked 2 Hoover guys out of the game (Dahl was one of those injured)

I thought Hoover had a good shot at beating this team w/o too much trouble.
