Sailors drop this one tonight 9-2 Grandville the final here tonight.
The Sailors faced off against a very strong, first place Grandville team with a 13-1 record going into the game. The Sailors started the game tough and played well together all throughout the first period only allowing Grandville to score one goal. The second period started 1-0, and after Grandville scored two goals before the 7 minute mark, Connor Winegar got the Sailors their first goal of the game. Grandville scored one more goal right before the end of the second period making the score 4-1 going into the third. Grandville scored less than 2 minutes into the 3rd period, but Shores came right back when Caleb Boes scored just 24 seconds after. The Sailors battle the first half of the third period hoping to level the score, but after Grandville scored 3 goals between the 8 and 10 minute mark, the Sailors just couldn't hang on, allowing them to score one more goal before the end of the game. The final score of the game was 9-2 with Grandville on top. The Sailors next game is this coming Saturday in Traverse City against the Trojans of Traverse City Central.

The Sailors came into the game looking to beat their #1 rival, the Rockets of Reeths-Puffer. The start of the first period was a pretty even game, but the Sailors fell behind after allowing Reeths-Puffer to score three goals within three minutes of each other starting at the 9-minute mark. The second period started in the favor of the Rockets after they scored two more goals before the 4-minute mark, one of them just 22 seconds into the period. After being down 5-0 most of the second period, Mark Mills finally got the Sailors on the board. The second period would end 5-1, but the Sailors would open the third period with a goal from Spencer Anderson and then a goal from Erick Hannahs to make the score 5-3. The Sailors would battle hard toward the end of the third, but Puffer scored on a breakaway with just 5 minutes left in the game and then an empty net goal with only a couple minutes left. The Sailors could not come back, losing to Reeths-Puffer 7-3.
