South Bend, IN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Freshman goaltender Matt McNeely stopped 29 shots as the #13-ranked University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD) men's hockey team beat #9-ranked Notre Dame 3-1 on Thursday night.

The game marked McNeely's first-ever collegiate start and win, coming in UMD's first road contest of the 2012-13 season.
