Excitement at the Lakeview Arena as the Marquette Redmen(7) Hockey Team Takes on the Negaunee Miners(1) on Fox Sports Marquette 105.1 & 99.9FM


Marquette, MIFebruary 21st, 2017 – On an unseasonably warm February night, the Marquette Redmen were set to take on the Negaunee Miners. Marquette won the opening draw, but were stopped a mid-ice. Tanner Phillips netted the Redmen’s first goal of the game off of a loose rebound at just three minutes into the game. Nick Leafers scored his first goal of his varsity career for Marquette five minutes into the period, putting the Redmen up by two goals. The Redmen were able to keep on top of the Miners, but they suffered a major penalty late in the period. With three minutes left in the first, the Redmen were still down a man, but they put in a third goal on a short-handed wrist shot from the top of the circles.

First Period Score

Marquette kept up the scoring, and added another to their tally at five minutes into the second. The hard-hitting action of the first period calmed down in the second, and that allowed the Redmen to put shot after shot onto the Miners’ net. As the second period passed the halfway point, Marquette continued to dominate the game. Negaunee got their first goal of the game on a Miners’ power play, and that slightly closed the gap between the two teams right before the second period ended.
