Douglas 9, Hug 1
RENO – Six senior players were presented with roses before the game on seniors day, they were given starting roles, and they all contributed to the Tigers victory against Hug.
Sarah Shearer, Julia Spaulding, Ali Shea and Stephanie Webb combined to score seven goals and distribute six assists, while the defensive tandem of Mariah Weigel and Stephanie Haws helped shut down the Hawks as Douglas improved its Division II-leading record to 14-1-1.

“You go away feeling good from a game like this,” Galena coach Tom Canino said. “It’s nice to see you can score a lot of goals, but we also know we couldn’t practice some of the things we need to improve on in a game like this.”
