It took a while for the game's first goal to be scored as it occurred in the final minute of the second period as Brandon Ledyard buried a rebound from the shot of Isaiah Bathrick. Throughout the 3rd period penalty trouble was an issue for the Sailors. Despite penalty trouble, Brandon Ledyard would score a shorthanded goal as banged home another rebound from Nick Nawrocki to give the Sailors two goal lead. Wyandotte would quickly respond to the Sailors goal as they would get a power play goal to decrease the Sailors lead to one. With the Sailors penalty trouble continuing, Wyandotte would capitalize on the power play making the game all tied up at 2-2 which would later send the game into overtime. It didn't take long as another Sailor penalty would give Wyandotte the 3-2 victory in Overtime. The Sailors fall to 2-5 on the season and will look to rebound from 4 straight losses as they enter conference play next weekend against Grandville.
Friday night the Sailors faced off against Allen Park. Allen Park struck first making it 1-0 heading into the first intermission. The Sailors tied the game with Ryan Wolf scoring his first varsity goal with help from Matt Martin and Connor Winegar. Allen Park would regain the lead off of a turnover by the Sailors.

The chance faded as the Sailors would allow an empty net goal making it a 2-4 defeat from the hands of Allen Park.
The Sailors were ready to play as they opened the game with multiple scoring chances as they outshot their opponents 13-5. A Sailor goal hadn't occurred all game long until late into the 2nd period when a power play goal from Connor Winnegar (His first varsity hockey goal) put the Sailors up 1-0. The Sailors would enter the final period with a 1-0 lead and would fight hard to keep the lead for the remainder of the game but couldn't hold off Saginaw's offensive push as they got the goal needed to tie the game. The game would go into overtime with the Sailors looking like they were fading fast. Overtime did not fare well for the Sailors as they would allow a goal just two minutes into overtime as it would result in a 1-2 overtime loss to Saginaw Heritage despite Brendan Sullivan's great performance in goal as he saved 26 of the 28 shots he faced Saturday night.
The Sailors were pumped up for their season home opener as the Sailors would score the game's first goal in the 2nd period when Zac Cuthbertson would score a goal from a nice passing on a Power Play rush from Brandon Ledyard and Isaiah Bathrick. The Sailors would hold the lead in the 2nd period until a 7 minute hiccup cost the Sailors 5 goals. The Sailors would finally respond to Midland Dow's five unanswered goals as Brandon Ledyard would bang home his second goal of the night off of a rebound from the shot of Ryan Wolf. The Sailors would start the 3rd period down 5-2 with hopes to make a comeback. The path to accomplish the comeback began with a Power Play goal scored by Hunter Meyers as he redirected Zac Cuthbertson's shot in which would decrease the deficit to two. The Chargers would later end the chances of a Sailor comeback when they scored late to make the game 6-3. The Sailors were unable to muster up any more offense to complete the 3rd period comeback as they would end their home opener with a 3-6 loss to Midland Dow.
