The University of Wisconsin-Superior men's hockey team rebounded from Friday's overtime loss at UW-Stout with a 4-2 win over the UW-River Falls Falcons Saturday night before a Wessman Arena crowd of 1,382. Playing a big role in the quick turnaround was freshman Braden Desmet, who scored two goals, including a short-hander that gave the Yellowjackets a 3-0 lead early in the first period. "Our backs were against the wall, but we came out and put Friday's loss behind us," Desmet said. "You can't dwell on it, so we came out blazing and we ended up winning.
Superior High School girls hockey coach Scott VanDamme set some lofty goals for this year's Spartan squad. The goal every year is to eventually make it to the Wisconsin state tournament, but this year he wanted his team to take at least 15 wins with it to Madison. "If we could finish the regular season at 15-5, that would have a pretty good mark, a very good mark," VanDamme said.
Every hockey coach wants to see its team improve every time it takes to the ice, and Superior High School boys hockey coach Jason Kalin is no different. After starting last season with six straight losses, Kalin was hoping for a better start to the 2006-07 season, and he got it with a 5-3 win over the Breck School Mustangs. The luster of the win was tarnished a bit as the Spartans followed that up with a 5-1 loss last Saturday at Eau Claire Memorial. "We had a poor showing at Memorial, but that may have been one of the healthiest things that could have happened to our program," Kalin said.
The University of Wisconsin-Superior men's basketball team opened Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference action with a 90-65 loss to UW-River Falls Wednesday night before a crowd of 350 at Mertz Mortorelli Gym. Leonard Cobb, last season's WIAC leading scorer for UWS, was held to four points and five rebounds while playing just 16 minutes because of foul trouble. Cobb, who picked up his fourth foul with four minutes left in the first half, didn't enter again until 2:30 had elapsed in the second half.
Missed opportunities in the first period came back to haunt the Superior High School girls hockey team in its 5-1 loss to the Proctor-Hermantown-Marshall Mirage Tuesday night at the Superior Ice Arena. In a scoreless first period, the Spartans failed on three power-play opportunities. Despite skating six minutes with an extra skater in the first 17 minutes of the game, Superior was outshot 14-7. Just seconds after the Spartans' fourth power play ended, Anna Pettingill beat Mirage goaltender Jen Coyle with a hard wrist shot from the slot.
The UW-Stevens Point women's hockey team avoided being swept by the University of Wisconsin-Superior Yellowjackets with a 4-1 win Saturday afternoon before a Wessman Arena crowd of 200. One day after the Yellowjackets defeated the Pointers 3-1, UWSP turned the tables on UWS to improve to 5-1 overall and 1-1 in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association. The loss drops the Yellowjackets to 7-2 overall and 1-1 in the NCHA. After a scoreless first period, Stevens Point scored both goals of the second period, Madison Darud tallied at 6:54 and Michelle Sosnowski at 11:59. The Pointers made it 3

Just a month ago the Northwestern Tigers girls cross country team finished 11th at the Rice Lake Invitational with 266 points. The Tigers were easily defeated by teams from Hayward, Osceola, Amery, Ellsworth and New Richmond. But what a difference a month can make as just last Friday the same Tiger team finished second at the WIAA sectional meet at Osceola, finishing only behind Osceola and easily defeating the other four teams listed above. By finishing in second, the Tiger girls earned a berth in Saturday's WIAA State Cross Country Meet in Wisconsin Rapids. Advancing to state for the Nor
The season came to an end for the Superior High School football team with a 49-18 loss to the Rice Lake Warriors Thursday night at Ole Haugsrud Field. While both teams entered the game already eliminated from the WIAA playoffs, it was the Warriors that came ready to play and scored on their first five possessions of the game to gradually pull away from the Spartans. "We had a lot of hungry seniors that have been pretty down about how the last few weeks have been," Rice Lake coach Dan Hill said.
