» Woodsmen Spring 2014 a Success
There was a hard-fought win at warm, windy Busse Woods on April 12, over the Chicago Griffins b-side, 34-15, as several a-siders (from their earlier win over the D1 Cincinnati Wolfhounds) entered our match in the second half. A tough time at the NIU Torunament of Champions on April 26 was tempered by a big win over the visiting Bloomington Crash, 39-22, on May 3rd. A 1-2-1 record at the CARFU Ball on May 10 still resulted in a trophy for 3rd place. The season's final results are 5-3, and 3-6-1 in tournaments.
