NEVER STOP RUNNING — Many people turn to the treadmill once temperatures start to drop. The truth is, with proper protection, you can keep running outside as long as youd like.

    Intramural hockey hits the rink at NMU

    With intramural sports in full swing this year, the Northern Michigan University intramural hockey teams played last night at the Berry Event Center.

    The NMU intramural hockey teams have been playing in full swing this year. The teams played Tuesday, March 26 at 11 p.m.

    Sophomore forward Wolff Belanger said the team that was put together for the intramural competition had great chemistry and defense.

    “Today we were clicking,” Belanger said. “Obviously, we came out strong. We had good goaltend and our offense was just hot tonight.”

    The Birdwatchers scored two minutes into the game, bringing the score to 1-0. The team went on to score their second point at 6:18 in the second period.

    Starting center Nick Athens said the team had a good performance and they brought it together.

    “We played really well,” Athens said. “They were a pretty good team so I didn’t expect to rout them seven-nothing, but we ended the game with 30 seconds left so we had a pretty good performance. We have a couple of club guys on the team along with a couple of non-club guys and our non-club guys all scored. We really brought it together.”

    The Birdwatchers continued to score consistently during the remainder of the game, scoring the third point at 10:55 into the game, the fourth point at 10:10, the fifth point at eight minutes, the sixth point at 3:14 and the final point with 20 seconds left in the match.

    The Birdwatchers play next against the Copper Country Sloots at 11 p.m. on Monday, April 1 at the Berry Events Center.

    Here-We-Go plays against the Presque Islanders 10 p.m. on Tuesday, April 2, which also takes place at the Berry Events Center.
