Eskymo Hockey Drops Season-Opener To Redmen

WELLS---The Escanaba High School hockey team was shut out by the Marquette Redmen, 4-0, in its season-opener Tuesday night in Wells.

Marquette jumped on the Eskymos early, withy Nick Leafers scorin 1:46 into the game.

The Redmen doubled their lead as Sean O'Connor took advantage of an Eskymo turnover and ripped it past goaltender Brodie Goddard for the goal.

Joe Phillips and Tanner Phillips scored in the second period for Marquette, as the Redmen used their speed to attack the Eskymo zone.

Goddard stopped 26 of 30 shots for the Eskymos.
