Fargo Force take on Ice this weekend in Clark Cup Finals rematch

This weekend will mark the first time that the Fargo Force will be taking on the Indiana Ice at the Urban Plains Center since the Ice hoisted the Clark Cup in Fargo last year.  Indiana doesn't have very many returning players from last year's Clark Cup winning team with 6 players remaining from 2008-09 and a lot of their big name guys from last year won't be in Fargo this year as most of them have gone on to play NCAA college hockey this year.

This year, the Force have played the Ice twice in Indiana and have split their first two meetings.  Fargo lost the 11/13 battle 6-3 and won the 11/14 in come from behind fashion to beat the Ice 6-5.  Nate Condon netted three goals and added two assists for five points in two games against Indiana so far this year.  Captain Chase Grant has also been good against the Ice with two goals and two assists and Corey Leivermann has been the dishmaster with four assists in two games against Indiana this year.  The Force will look to shut down Shane Berschbach (1g, 4a against Fargo this year), Nic Dowd (2g, 3a vs. Fargo this year) and Antti Roppo (3g vs. Force this year) this weekend.

Force goaltenders Ryan Massa and Dayn Belfour have yet to face the Ice in a Force uniform this season as former goalies Cody Campbell and Ryan Holfeld played the Ice in Indiana earlier this year.

Fargo takes on Indiana at 8:05pm on Saturday night and 4:05 on Sunday afternoon.
