Hatchet skaters earn win over Northland Pines, get blanked by Mosinee
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – The Tomahawk Hatchet hockey team went 1-1 in last week’s action.
The Hatchets hosted Northland Pines on Tuesday, Jan. 11, and came away with a 10-4 victory.
Head coach Chris Bembinster said the win over Northland Pines was “a long time coming for Tomahawk.”
“This group is starting to settle in to the team they should be,” Bembinster stated after the game. “We had some ups and downs, but we responded exactly as we should to bring home a win. We as a coaching staff are extremely proud of this team tonight.”
On Thursday, Jan. 13, the Hatchets traveled to Mosinee and found themselves on the wrong side of a tough 11-0 loss.
“We had a few wrinkles that didn’t help the cause and made this a true mental test for many reasons,” Bembinster said. “Big lessons to learn from this game for sure. The only thing we can do now: study those lessons and use those to make us a stronger team the rest of the season. Now we put this game in the past and change the future.”
The Tomahawk skaters are set to return to action on Tuesday, Jan. 18, hosting Ashland at SARA Park. The Chequamegon Screaming Eagles will be in town on Thursday, Jan. 20. Opening puck drop is set for 7 p.m. The Hatchets will travel to Waupaca on Friday, Jan. 21, for a game that gets underway at 7 p.m. On Saturday, Jan. 22, Tomahawk will host Oshkosh North, with the game beginning at 1 p.m. The Hatchets are set to travel to Antigo on Tuesday, Jan. 25 for a matchup that gets underway at 7 p.m.
