The Cortland St. Red Dragons have won 11 straight, by a combined 163 goals. They won every conference game by at least 11 goals, winning the championship in a 13 goal romp.
And it means nothing.
The only game the players still talk about, is the loss.

" That loss really made us band together. We don't want that feeling again."
It came against the school's biggest rivals, Ithaca college, and brought back memories they'd just as soon forget.

" It reminded us a lot of last year. And we didn't want"
A year ago the team lost 6 games, and needed to rally to win the conference title and NCAA games on the road to advance to the NCAA championship game.

" You have to play every day, nothing is just given to you." " Last year we learned a lot from experience, and it will help this year."
" Last year it was my first time, this year I'd like to do it again."
