Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The St. Scholastica men's hockey team would love nothing more than to win a Northern Collegiate Hockey Association (NCHA) championship this weekend, if only because of the prize that comes with it.

The winner of the NCHA postseason tournament, the Harris Cup, earns an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III tournament --- and that's been the goal of this Saints team all season long.

"Playing in the championship game is important, but for us, we have a bigger goal," head coach Mark Wick said. "That's getting into the national tournament. Obviously, if we don't win Saturday night, we won't be playing in the national tournament."

St. Scholastica will be playing St. Norbert in the NCHA championship game, with that contest set to start at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday in De Pere, Wis.
