Hatchets wrap wins around Eskymo loss
The Hatchets boy pulled off a 4-1 win over Medford at home on Thursday, then headed off to Escanaba for a weekend tourney.
Their hosts pummeled Tomahawk 9-1 on Friday, but THS passed on the favor in Saturday’s 8-1 rout of Nagaunee.
“Escanaba was probably the best team we’ve played in the six years I’ve been coaching,” THS coach Jake Flohr said. “We were in it 3-1 after the first, but then we kind of fell apart.
“Nagaunee was a better team than the score. Our team just played really well.”
Luke Schoone doled out 6 assists in the Nagaunee contest, while Alex Ungerer gave 3 goals and 1 assist. A.J. Bunce (2 g, 1 a), Jacob Panzer (1 g, 2 a), Kevin Bolder (1 g, 1 a), Chris Parker (1 g), Trevor Iwen (1 a), Matt Parker (1 a), and Nick Buitron (1 a) contributed to the scoring.

Saves-THS-Evan Russo 23. EHS-unavailable.
Tomahawk left the first period tied with Medford, but took 3-1 charge in the second and tacked on an insurance goal in the third.
“We played a decent game,” Flohr said. “We only played a couple of periods. It was still a win, but it wasn’t a pretty one.”
Ungerer scored twice, while Bolder gave a goal and 2 assists. Iwen (1 g) and Luke Schoone (1 a) aided the scoring.
Clayton Kree had an unassisted goal for Medford.
Saves-THS-Evan Russo 13, 1 g; Danny Hanke 0 sv, 0 g. MHS-Carter Jamieson 34.
