For the second time in two years, the Daley college Brwins have finished first in the Northern Illinois Collegiate Hockey association (NICHA). After clinching a division- ·al playoff berth with a 4-2 win over Elmhurst, the Bruins finished their season with a flourish, knocking off third place Purdue-Calumet 6-1 for a final 16-1-2 league record. Also in the NICHA playoffs is second place Moraine Valley, slated to play Elmhurst. Moraine, having a 11-1 record against the Bruins, are considered to be the favorites in their game, but Bruin Coach Bill Le- Monnier contends it to be a tossup. "Moraine Valley lost three, one of which was to last place Morton college, and Elmhurst has lost four, so I'd say it's pretty even," LeMonnier stated at practice Thursday-. "Anyway, the pressure's on them, not us. Since we haven't lost a game since the first one of the season, Td say we're the favorites, overall." That one loss was a 5-4 squeaker to Moraine Valley, which tied Daley and Moraine for first Since then, the Bruins moved into the top spot, and have not been toppled from first place all season. Closest to them was Moraine, two and one half games behind. Likewise Elmhurst, in the North division of the NICHA, cake walking through the season and finishing more than five games above second place Trinity college, but still four games behind the Bruins on the loss side.
