The Northland Pines boys hockey team opened the Great Northern Conference (GNC) with a thrilling 4-3 overtime victory at Waupaca Saturday.

“Waupaca lost a couple of key players from last season, but had their leading scorer back and their first-team All-Conference goalie as well,” said Pines coach Charlie DePuydt. “We knew that we were going to have to play well and slow Jared Erickson down through the neutral zone. He has great lateral movement and a very accurate hard shot.”
