PHILADELPHIA -- The Union men's hockey team beat the Minnesota Golden Gophers 7-4 in Philadelphia winning the national championship.

This is the first championship win for the Dutchmen, who worked hard to get to this point.

Just three seasons ago, Union wasn't even in the NCAA Tournament, and now they've taken home the national championship.

It was a roller-coaster ride of a game, with Union getting down early, but then putting three goals on the board in a less than two minute span in the first period, taking a 4-2 lead.

Minnesota clawed back to cut the Union lead to one at 5-4 late in the third period, but a breakaway goal and an empty-netter from the opposite blue line sealed the game for a celebratory Union hockey team.

Two talented hockey schools in this one, but that's where the similarities between Union and Minnesota end.

Union is a small private school that offers no athletic scholarships to attract players.

Minnesota has 20 times more students than Union and the Golden Gophers have a long history of wins in the tournament, taking home the national championship most recently when they won back-to-back titles in 2002 and 2003.
