If we have learned one thing from the National Championships during elimination games it is this; it doesn’t matter how a team gets the win as long as when the game is completed, your team has more goals than the other team.  Lindenwood’s B squad is a prime example of this.

The Lions entered the 2014 National Collegiate Roller Hockey Championships in Aston, PA in Pool A, set to face off against the best teams the B Division had to offer in the country.  They proved they were the team to beat finishing with a perfect 3-0 record in round robin play. 

In the Elite Eight, the Lions faced off against the University of Central Florida.  The Knights proved to be a tough battle as they pushed Lindenwood University to the brink of elimination.  The game went into overtime all knotted up at 3.  It wasn’t until a shot from Spenser Marquiss crossed the UCF goal line, winning the game for Lions.

Their Final Four matchup was a rematch against the Arizona State Sun Devils.  A suffocating defensive performance by Lindenwood held ASU to only 8 shots in the game.  They went on to win 4-1 to advance to yet another National Championship Game.
