SAULT STE, MARIE, MI - The Wildcats got two third period goals and spectacular goaltending as Alpena upset #9 Midland Dow, 2-0, on Saturday afternoon at Big Bear Arena. After the two teams skated to a scoreless first two periods, the Wildcats were the first to get on the board. With 4:36 left in the period, Brett Ciupka was able to poke home a loose puck to give Alpena the 1-0 lead. The Wildcats would get strong goaltending from Jimmy Bolanowski, and a few moments from Colin Lightfoot, to make sure the lead held up. Tanner Orban would bury an empty-net goal with 0:20 remaining the seal the upset victory.
Alpena (2-9-2) will head to Traverse City for the TC Reps Showcase next weekend.
