ALPENA, MI - Big North Conference Champion Traverse City Central proved too much for the shorthanded Wildcats in their 6-2 victory on Friday night in the regular-season finale at Northern Lights Arena. The Trojans got to work quickly scoring two goals in the opening 1:29 when Christopher Usiondek and Nick Sommerfeld both found the back of the net. After a Wildcat timeout, Anden Marceau picked the puck in the Alpena zone, weaved his way past the Trojan defenders, and slide the puck past Grant Neuhardt to cut the lead to 2-1.
The Trojans pulled away in the second period when Charlie Douglass scored a pair of goals to give Traverse City Central the 4-1 lead after two. Eli Gosselin gave the Wildcats a glimpse of hope when he scored his first goal of the season early in the third period. The Trojans would snuff out that hope with a pair of goals by Douglass and Carson Peters.
Alpena (10-13-2) will open up postseason play at Northern Lights Arena on February 26 when they take on Cheboygan at 7pm.
