This is an evolving report story that will be updated with new information as the event goes on.
The temperature is dropping at Delaware Park in Buffalo, NY, home of the 2nd Annual Ives Pond Invitational. While there is a moderate level of snow on the ground, it is nothing, thankfully, compared to the blizzard conditions of last year.
All ten teams are in great spirits and there is a joyous spirit in the air, thanks to the winter festival taking place around the tournament.
Competition has been clean but fierce. One concussion has led to an ambulance trip for a SUNY Geneseo player, while a U Ottawa player had a bleeding nose, among other injuries.
