Wolverine icemen lose opener to Dragons


A retooling Wadena-Deer Creek hockey team ran into a dominating Litchfield/Dassel-Cokato squad Tuesday and suffered a 6-0 home loss in their season opener.

The Dragons out-shot the Wolverines 38-7 and gave Dan Savoie's club a good look at their strength, speed and experience.

"I think the sophomores got a taste for the speed of the varsity game," Savoie said. "They (Litchfield) were ready to go. They came out and put us back on our heels right away."
