Alpena Takes Down Gabriel Richard in D3 Challenge
GAYLORD, MI- After a tough loss against Detroit Country Day, the Alpena hockey team did not get on the bus home. Instead they had a team meal, in which the boys sang happy birthday to multiple fellow diners, which was followed by an overnight at an Airbnb in Gaylord. The group got too enjoy some time off the ice and it reflected when they returned to the ice on Saturday.
The Wildcats took down Gabriel Richard 3-2 in the final game of the division three challenge. The Wildcats fell behind 1-0 early, before scoring three straight goals. After Gabriel Richard scored with 13 seconds left to trim the deficit to one, the Wildcats held on for the win.
Trent Frasier got the Wildcats going with a first period goal. The defenseman took a pass from Harrison Kaszubowski and scored his first goal of the year. Jaden Marchlewski gave the Wildcats the lead in the second, putting home a rebound after a Brody Thompson shot. Kaszubowski capped off the scoring as he buried a feed from Captain Anden Marceau in the third period.
Alpena returns to Northern Lights Arena on December 16 when they host unbeaten Big North Conference rival Cadillac.
