Marquette off on roadie to Albert Lea

For the third time this season, the Marquette Rangers will leave the North Division, traveling this weekend to Albert Lea, Minn., to battle the Albert Lea Thunder of the NAHL Central.

So far this season, Marquette is undefeated against out-of-division opponents having swept both Fairbanks (West) and North Iowa (Central) at Lakeview Arena earlier this year.

The Rangers are currently tied for second place in the North Division with the Janesville Jets. Both teams trail Traverse City by six points heading into this weekend.

Marquette will try and rebound after losing both games at Motor City last weekend.

Albert Lea, in their second year of operation after joining the NAHL last season, currently sits in last place in the Central Division and has dropped three out of their last four games. The Thunder trail North Iowa by 10 points for the final playoff spot in the Central Division race.
