Jon Nowacki Duluth News Tribune University of Wisconsin-Superior softball coach Roger Plachta didn’t know what to expect when he attended a meeting with administration officials Monday morning, but it turned out to be a shocker.

Wisconsin-Superior men's hockey forward Brad Phenow remembers his first game against rival St. Scholastica as a freshman in 2010. Phenow will remember his last game against the Saints even more. Phenow, a senior captain from Sauk Rapids, Minn., scored the game-winning goal and added two assists to lead UWS to a much-needed 3-2 nonconference victory on Saturday before 834 spectators at Mars Lakeview Arena, handing the Saints their first loss of the season.

"That's like winning the lottery," St. Scholastica football coach Greg Carlson said. The Saints hit the jackpot with Mike LaValley and Jake Turkowski. The senior defensive backs from Superior will lead St. Scholastica (9-1) into its NCAA Division III first-round playoff game against top-seeded Bethel (10-0).
