Boys hockey: Storm split games over weekend
North Shore senior Mason Meyer netted a hat trick in the Storm's blowout win over Park Rapids on Friday, Dec. 29, in Two Harbors.
Meyer scored just two minutes into the game off a pass from sophomore Ryder McMillen to get the scoring started. Meyer would add goal before the end of the first period and another five minutes into the second.
Cole Komarek added two goals and an assist in the game and Caden Costley had a goal and an assist. Cameron Roy stopped 17 shots for the Storm.
The next night, North Shore played Mora/Milaca to a draw in the first period thanks to a Will Olson goal with less than two minutes to play. Two goals in the second and third periods for the Mustangs sealed the Storm's fate in a 5-2 loss.
Sully Tikkanen scored the other Storm goal and Roy and Connor Sullivan combined to make 19 saves.
The tournament was scheduled to be an eight-team tournament over three days, but snow Dec. 27 forced the cancellation of that day's games. The teams were then reorganized into brackets and essentially played two four-team tournaments Dec. 28-29.
North Shore (3-7-1) will play at International Falls at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 5.
