Moorhead High boys hockey loses to Wayzata
January 10, 2019
The Moorhead High boys hockey team returned to the Moorhead Sports Center on Jan. 5 after a challenging month of playing on the road. Moorhead took on Wayzata in another match of ranked teams. The Spuds suffered on both ends of the ice from bad breaks and occasional lapses of focus, losing 0-5.
Isaac Henkemeyer-Howe (4) (pictured) slides into the net on a rush only to pull the net off its mooring, nullifying the shot from Tommy Horan (2). Kyler Kleven (10) circles in the foreground waiting for another rebound.
Throughout the game, the Spuds misfired offensively with unsuccessful breakaways and shots ringing off the pipes. Defensively they were unable to maintain pressure, and Wayzata took advantage of the lapses.
The Spuds came back to beat East Grand Forks 4-3 on Jan. 8. They play Bloomington Jefferson at 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12 at the Moorhead Sports Center.
