The Wadena-Deer Creek boys hockey team picked up its third straight win after a rocky second period.

The Wolverines overcame a four-goal Bagley-Fosston second period to beat the Flyers 7-5.

Cooper Ness, Connor Davis and Aron Sutherland scored in the first period to put WDC ahead 3-0. The Flyers scored four consecutive goals in the second, which included a hat trick from Quinten Friborg to take a 4-3 lead. Carson and Connor Davis each scored before the second intermission to put the Wolverines back in front.

Breckin Levin tied the game early in the third for Bagley-Fosston with his second goal before Sutherland’s second of the game proved to be the winner. Jack Koranda added insurance with a goal on the power play with seven minutes left.

The win followed a 7-3 victory over Red Lake Falls on Saturday. Cole Woods had two goals and two assists, while MJ Lunde had two goals and an assist in the four-goal win. Jaeger Pettit, Evan Lunde and Kaden Peterson also scored.


The Wolverines started their three-game win streak with a 7-0 shutout win over Prairie Centre last Tuesday. Sutherland, Woods, Koranda, Austyn Oothoudt and Connor Davis all had multi-point games, including Davis’ hat trick.

WDC has won five of its last six games and has a 5-2 record on the season.
