ESCANABA - Unable to contain Luke Schodne and his Tomahawk (Wis.) teammates, the Negaunee High School hockey team lost an 8-1 decision to the Hatchets Saturday in the Escanaba Tournament.

Schodne recorded five assists - two on a pair of goals by Alex Ungerer - for Tomahawk, which led 6-0 after two periods.

Chad Larson notched Negaunee's lone marker, that coming on an assist by Michael Farley.

"We played hard," head coach Eric Hill said after his team had fallen to a 1-6 record this season. "We had a lot of guys out of the lineup due to injuries and it gave some of our younger guys an opportunity to play.

"We couldn't get any bounces, either. We hit two goalposts in the first period."

Tomahawk went 3-for-9 on the power play while the Miners were 0-for-8.

Negaunee goaltender Tyler Riutta made 33 saves; tomahawk's Evan Russo came up with 16 stops - none in the third period.

In their tourney-opener Friday night, the Miners fell to L'Anse, 5-2. Cody Wetton and Farley tallied for Negaunee, with Ethan Ledford gaining an assist.

Tyler Polich posted two goals and two assists for L'Anse.

Negaune netminder Anthony Moyle turned aside 37 shots on goal; Jason Rank of L'Anse made 14 saves.

"It was 2-2 after two periods, but we lost some steam at the end," Hill commented. "They scored on a five-minute power play in the third and that hurt us."
