Sports roundup: Dec. 6
With the holiday weekend and two snow days leading to cancelled games, it was a quiet week for North Shore sports teams. The Silver Bay girls' hockey and basketball teams were the only ones at play.
Mariner hockey girls lose two
The Mariners hockey team dropped two home games - one on Friday to Superior and another on Saturday to Spring Lake Park. At 0-5-1, the girls are winless so far this season.
They lost to Superior 2-7, with senior Anna Carman and junior Kristiina Thums scoring goals for the Mariners. Sophomore goalie Sara Carman had 32 saves.
The Spring Lake game was a 2-4 loss, with both Mariner goals coming during power plays. Freshman Hattie Koehler notched a point in the beginning of the second period and junior Samantha Anderson finished the game off with a goal at the end of the third period. It wasn't enough to overcome the Panther's four-point lead the Panthers, however.
Their game at home against the Duluth Northern Stars on Tuesday was postponed due to school cancellations.
Mariner basketball squad kicks off season
The Mariner girls played their first match on Monday at home and they fell to Fond du Lac Ojibwe 58-27. The girls had a 4-20 record last year and graduated powerhouse Alicia Nopola. They are starting a young team this year, with five freshmen and an eighth-grader on the varsity roster. Brandi Nopola is the only senior this year.
The girls play Two Harbors tonight at 5:45 p.m. in the Two Harbors High School gym. It's the season opener for the Agates after Tuesday's match was postponed.
