Any chances of a Lake Superior Conference championship all but vanished for the Superior High School boys hockey team with a 3-2 loss to the Proctor Rails Tuesday night at Wessman Arena. The loss drops the Spartans (13-5, 5-3 LSC) into a three-way tie for third place in the LSC along with Cloquet-Esko Carlton (11-10-2, 4-3) and Hermantown (15-8, 5-4).
The Superior High School girls basketball team took another step toward a Lake Superior Conference championship with a 70-38 win over Duluth Marshall Tuesday night at the SHS gym. The Spartans (10-5) are in first place in the LSC with an 8-1 record and 22 points. With a win over Duluth Denfeld at home on Thursday, Superior will clinch at least a share of the LSC title. Proctor is currently second in the LSC with 18 points and Hermantown is next with 12. Proctor and Hermantown still have to play each other and Superior hosts Proctor on Feb.
The Superior High School boys hockey team was given the No. 1 seed in Section 1 for the upcoming WIAA Boys Hockey Tournament. The Spartans (13-4) will receive an opening-round bye then host the winner of the Baldwin-Woodville/Amery winner at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 15 at Wessman Arena. The winner of that game will play the winner of Webster and New Richmond on Tuesday, Feb. 19. The sectional championship game is Feb. 23 in Hudson. The Spartan girls hockey team (5-12-1) was awarded the No. 3 seed in the girls tournament and will host Tomahawk at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb.
Another game, another hero. One night after Seth Reda's short-handed goal helped the University of Wisconsin-Superior men's hockey team finish in a 1-1 with St. Norbert, Kevin Huck scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 4-3 win over Lake Forest. The three-point weekend moves the Yellowjackets into a fourth-place tie in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association with UW-Stevens Point. Both teams have 12 points, one behind UW-River Falls and UW-Stout, which are tied for second with 13 points. St.
Seth Reda's short-handed goal with 1:06 remaining in regulation helped the University of Wisconsin-Superior men's hockey team finish in a 1-1 tie with the St. Norbert Green Knights Friday night at Wessman Arena. The game seemed all but lost when UWS was called for too many men on the ice with 2:35 remaining.
MAPLE -- Basketball fans got their money's worth Thursday night at Northwestern High School. After the junior varsity game went into double overtime, the varsity game between the Northwestern Tigers and Hayward Hurricanes was just as dramatic as the visiting 'Canes rallied past the Tigers for a 27-25 victory. With the win, Hayward (12-2 overall) takes over sole possession of first place in the Heart O' North Conference with a 9-1 record.
The University of Wisconsin-Superior men's hockey team has five games remaining, including its final two home games of the regular season this weekend. After hosting St. Norbert at 7:05 p.m. today and Lake Forest Saturday, the Yellowjackets have road games at UW-Eau Claire, UW-Stevens Point and St.
A depleted Superior High School boys hockey team defeated the Menomonie Indians 7-2 Saturday afternoon at Wessman Arena. With the Spartans playing without seniors Tim Smith and Wade Berkseth, the line of Pat Dalbec, John LeDoux and Noah Gilbertson picked up the slack in helping the Spartans improve to 12-4 on the season. Smith, the team's leading goal scorer with 12, suffered a lower leg injury in practice Thursday and Berkseth, who received a 10-minute misconduct penalty in the Spartans' previous game, was sidelined for one game by SHS coach Jason Kalin. With the shuffling of lines, the Da
The Lucky's/Shenannigan's team of Eau Claire was the last team to sign up for the Great Lakes Classic Pond Hockey Championships, which took place this weekend at Barker's Island. That was unfortunate for the rest of the field as the former UW-Eau Claire players won the fourth annual championship with an 18-12 win over Hydro Solutions of Crookston, Minn. Ryan O'Neill, Dan Krenn, Dave Coleman and Andy Klapperick originally found out about the tournament when they were in town to play the UW-Superior Yellowjackets two years ago. "We were playing UWS and drove by and saw a bunch of little rinks
The plan Sunday night was to watch the NFC Championship Game between the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants all by myself while stretched out on the couch. But those plans didn't last very long. After spending about five hours helping run a youth hockey tournament at the Superior Ice Arena, then putting in a couple of hours at the office, I returned home around 5 p.m.
