Coming off an impressive win over Chequamegon, Tomahawk hockey was unable to make it two in a row on the road as they fell to Marshfield in a non-conference tilt by a score 11-0.
As a team that started the season light on numbers, things didn’t get any better as right out of the gates Tomahawk lost a skater to injury. Despite being a man down, Hatchet head coach Chris Bembinster said the team probably had their best start to a game to start the season.
“We gave up a few goals, but we were competing,” coach Bembinster said after his team finished out the first down just 3-0.
The Hatchets managed to carry it into to period two and actually outshot Marshfield 10-7 in the period. Unfortunately, the Hatchets were unable to find the back of the net before the Tigers added five more to the scoreboard in the final period to get the shutout win.
“The third (period) we can do better, and we will get better,” Bembinster added. “We are still working through a lot of different aspects of this game. We move on from this one and concentrate on the next.”
Tomahawk traveled to Ashland to take on the Oredockers to finish out the week. They are back in action over the holiday break as they travel to Baraboo for a tournament being held Dec. 27-28. Opening puck drop on Friday is at 5 p.m. with start time Saturday scheduled for 3 p.m.
