Two Harbors

The Wolverines must have had a good night's sleep as they continued their trip in the North Shore leaving Two Harbors a bit sore in a 5-0 win.

Sophomore Gunner Olson got his first career shutout in just his second varsity start. But this win was a team effort for sure.

Cole Woods had two goals and one assist; Dalton Moyer had three assists; Evan Lunde scored twice; Aron Sutherland assisted on two goals; Connor Davis had goal; while Jaeger Pettit, Aiden Sutherland and Jack Koranda all added one assist.

It's a season start that's showing the boys are capable of scoring big.
