The Grizzlies begin the event against the University of Mount Union on Saturday, September 6 at 6 p.m. The team then battles Trine University on Sunday, September 7 at 4 p.m. Transylvania University, a fellow Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference member college, rounds out the four-team tournament field.

The scoring chance was set up by junior Austin Fundenberger (Indianapolis, Ind./North Central) during an odd-man rush.
