Sports Echoes -- Feb. 16

The St. Scholastica Saints had all-American Bill Courchiane in goal, but needed even more hockey talent as the Saints fell to the UW-Superior Yellowjackets 9-5. Ken Mertz and Casey VanDamme each netted two goals and Mark Palmer, Rod Alstead, Tom Doig, Jeff Krensing and Scott VanDamme each found the range with a single goal. Courchiane turned away 50 shots, but the ’Jackets improved to 9-16. (1978)

Jack Peterson scored the only goal of the game as his Billings Park team defeated Pattison in Superior PeeWee Hockey League action. Paul Hill fired in two goals for Wade Bowl and that was enough in a 2-1 win over Pattison. Wade Wiitala managed to get the puck in the nets twice and Jim Fuller was successful once as East End dropped South End 3-1. (1978)
