GAYLORD, MI - The Alpena Hockey team struggled to get going offensively and could not dig out of an early hole in a 4-1 loss to Gaylord on Saturday night at the Ostego Sportsplex. Gaylord quickly jumped on the Wildcats with early 1st period goals from Jon Allen and Peter Pawlanta. Kyle VanDusen drew the Wildcats close late in the opening period after converting a Blue Devil turnover. After a scoreless second period, Gaylord regained a two-goal lead just 1:04 into the third when Colton Hurst beat Cooper Black. Jon Allen would add an empty-netter late to complete the upset. Alpena (9-2-1, 3-1-0 BNC) will head to Sault Ste. Marie next weekend with a pair of Showcase games with Division 2 #5 ranked Plymouth (9-3-0) on Friday night at 6pm and Division 3 #12 ranked Midland Dow (6-3-0) on Saturday afternoon at 1pm.
