High School
In high school hockey last night, the Houghton Gremlins scored four times on a major penalty to start the third period, and skated to a 7-1 victory over Hancock in the annual Wing Ding match. It was a close 2-1 game when the major was assessed with 10 seconds left in the second period, opening the door for Houghton’s outburst in the third. The Wing Ding series wraps up with the basketball game at Hancock Friday night. Hear the broadcast on KBear 102.3 and KBear102.com. See video highlights from last night’s game here.
