SIREN – The next chance for a win at home is Thursday for the WSFLG boys co-op hockey team.

The Blizzard face Baldwin-Woodville in what was originally scheduled as the third of three consecutive home games, though the second game was postponed last Saturday due to weather. And the first game of the home stretch didn’t garner a favorable result for WSFLG.

Last Thursday, the Blizzard hosted Rice Lake and took their third shutout loss of the season, 9-0. The Warriors outshot WSFLG 41-12 and scored eight of their nine goals at even strength, including four in the first period.

Cole Fenske, Zach Holmstrom and Bryce Brettingen scored goals in a three-minute span of the period, then a fourth goal was added late to put Rice Lake up 4-0. The Warriors added another less than six minutes into the second and had two more in the span of 20 seconds to take a 7-0 lead into the third.

The Blizzard were denied scores on any of their three power play goals, but the Warriors converted on one near the midway point of the third. Rice Lake’s eighth goal at even strength was the final score of the game.

Cashton Kapp had 32 saves for WSFLG, which follows this Thursday’s game with a road matchup at Medford on Saturday. The Blizzard dropped to 0-12 overall on the season.
