You can't lose 'em all, Sioux win 6-4.
The last place Fighting Sioux called up a
secret weapon, ref Mark Karas, and that's the help they needed to
get their first win in six tries. Yup, that's all they needed, was a
good ref and some bad weather to finally get in the win column.
Here are some of the internet headlines we found:
Karas Leads F'Sioux To First Win In Consolation Game Preview
- A big shout out to Captain Rick Breed for leaving the A players,
plus Tripp and Hardy, home and letting the Sioux finally win one.
- When Saia scores, the Sioux are undefeated.
- Snow problem for Fighting Sioux.
There were others, but they were worse, much worse. As far as the
actual game went, the teams played to a 2-2 tie after one period. In
the 2nd the Wolverines went up 4-3 on goals by Danaher and
But the 3rd was all Fighting Sioux. Finally some of the A players
who were demoted to the 3rd line stepped up. Cormican, Leslie, and
Melito all cashed in, and that was good enough for a 6-4 win.
After the game captain Long announced that those three players would
be bumped up to the 2nd line next week, as these two teams meet
again in the back end of a Home and Home series.
