By Journal Sports Staff

MARQUETTE — The Marquette Senior High School varsity hockey team fell to Calumet 3-2 at Lakeview Arena on Tuesday night.

Despite the loss, MSHS head coach Doug Garrow was pleased with certain aspects of the game.

“I think it was just a really good high school hockey game,” he said. “There weren’t a lot of penalties and it was just a well-played game. Calumet controlled the play for a majority of the game, but we didn’t allow Grade-A scoring chances and were right in it for most of the game. (Senior goaltender) Tyler Bergwall played a good game as well.”

The Redmen hit the scoreboard first in the first period with sophomore forward Dylan Baldwin finding the back of the net on assists from senior forward Kobie Guidebeck and sophomore defenseman Evan Kroll.

Calumet had two goals in the second from Nick Djers and Rylan Anderson to go up 2-1 entering the final 17 minutes.

Marquette was able to tie things up at 2-2 with 9:30 left in the third on a tally from sophomore forward Ansel Frost, assisted by junior defenseman Jakob Peterson.

With 2:40 to go however, Calumet’s Brent Loukus fired one passed Bergwall which stood as the game winner.

Shots were 36-13 in favor of the Copper Kings with Bergwall setting aside 33. There was just one penalty in the game, going against Marquette.

The Redmen travel to Hancock on Tuesday.
