It'll be No. 2 vs. No. 4 with No. 1 on the line when the University of Wisconsin-Superior Yellowjackets and St. Scholastica Saints do battle in a men's hockey game Saturday night at Mars Lakeview Arena. The Yellowjackets and Saints kept personal unbeaten streaks intact over the weekend as the two hottest teams in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association. The Saints (13-3-1) have won nine straight games, while UWS (15-1-1) is 13-0-1 the last 14 games. Both teams defeated St. Olaf College and Gustavus Adolphus of the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference on the road last weekend.
The Superior High School boys hockey team is in the middle of a well-deserved break after recently playing seven games in less than two weeks. The game-spree started with a third-place finish in the Duluth Marshall Hilltopper Classic and ended with wins over Eau Claire North, Proctor, Duluth Central and Hudson. "It's been a busy schedule, but now it kind of slows down for us with just two games in the next two weeks," SHS coach Jason Kalin said. While it's fun to play games every day, the need for practice becomes more apparent then ever. "We've been playing well, but it's apparent that th
The Superior High School boys hockey team defeated the Hudson Raiders 3-1 Saturday afternoon at Wessman Arena. Dan Kolenda scored for the Spartans when he poked home the rebound after Hudson goalie Garrett Patrick made a save on Tyler Plunkett's shot from the left point. The games started 30 minutes late because of Hudson's late-arriving bus. Superior outshot Hudson 13-3 in the first period. The second period was pretty even with Hudson outshooting Superior 3-12. Hudson's best scoring chances came on a power play late in the period when the Raiders deflected a shot off the right post and

Pat Dalbec scored a pair of power-play goals and assisted Kellen McCoshen's goal.
PROCTOR -- The Superior High School boys hockey team notched its sixth win in its last seven games with a 5-1 win Tuesday night at Proctor.

The Spartans, playing their fourth game in six days, got two goals apiece from Chris Bishop and Taylor Leuthner to improve to 7-3 on the season.

DULUTH -- The Superior High School boys hockey team finished in third place in the Duluth Marshall Hilltopper Holiday Classic with a 4-1 over Madison Edgewood Wednesday afternoon at Mars Lakeview Arena.

Superior improves to 6-3 on the season, while Edgewood, which was ranked No. 1 in Wisconsin, falls to 5-2-1.
The Appleton United entered the Duluth Marshall Hilltopper Holiday Classic to get a taste of what Minnesota high school hockey competition is all about. If Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Superior High School Spartans was any indication is Appleton could easily handle adding a few more Minnesota foes to his schedule. "Physically, they beat us around the rink," SHS coach Jason Kalin said. "We played one heck of a game, but Appleton's a deep team and top to bottom every line played well for them. "We played hard right to the end, but they played like an Iron Range team.
DULUTH -- The Superior High School boys hockey team kicked off the Duluth Marshall Hilltoppers Classic with a 4-2 win over the New Ulm (Minn.) Eagles Monday afternoon at Mars Lakeview Arena. Superior coach Jason Kalin gave junior goaltender Joel Pettingill his first varsity start, and early on the move may not have looked like a good one as the Spartans found themselves trailing 2-0 just 1:04 into the second period. But Pettingill settled down, as did the rest of the Spartans as they improved to 5-2 on the season. "It feels pretty good. I had a lot of fun out there," Pettingill said.
WISCONSIN RAPIDS -- The Superior High School Spartans defeated the Wisconsin Rapids Red Raiders 5-1 Saturday afternoon at the South Wood County Recreation Center.

"The first period was pretty close, we weren't doing the small things right," SHS coach Jason Kalin said.
