Traverse City, MIJanuary 14th, 2017 – It was day two of the second Traverse City Showcase, and the Marquette Redmen were taking on the Big Rapids Cardinals. They were coming off of a big win the previous night, and they looked to keep the momentum rolling. The Cardinals were a big team, and Marquette had lots of trouble clearing the puck from their own zone. This resulted in the first goal of the game for the Cardinals, and with about 4:00 left in the first, the Redmen were down 0-1. Marquette would have one more good scoring chance before the period ended, but they were unable to get on the scoreboard.

Just minutes later, Hunter scored again, putting Marquette into the lead. The Cardinals gave Marquette several scares as the period wore on, but the Redmen’s defense was too strong. In an amazing piece of shooting, Hunter D. scored his third goal (natural hat trick) of the period, increasing their lead to two goals. It was a wild end to the period, and at the 16:59, one second before the buzzer sounded, the Redmen scored their fourth goal of the game.
