Pines Classic scheduled
this Friday, Saturday
By Gary Ridderbusch
The Northland Pines boys hockey team defeated Tomahawk and Rhinelander last week to remain undefeated in the Great Northern Conference (GNC) with a 10-0 mark.
The Eagles are 13-2 overall and ranked sixth in the state. Pines was scheduled to play at fifth-ranked Wausau West (10-3-1) on Tuesday of this week. Pines and West are in the same Sectional in February, so the game has seeding implications.
Northland Pines beat an improving Tomahawk team 3-0 last Tuesday. “
“We played them early in the year and, with young players on their team, we knew they would get better having made mistakes the first half of the year,”
