Hodag boys basketball played Merrill in a nonconference game Tuesday night hoping to win their second game of the season. Merrill opened the game with a 10-0 run and the Hodags could never get any closer than five points in the game. After the first half the Hodags were down 15-33. Merrill maintained the lead and defeated the Hodags 33-55.
Tuesday night the boys swim team continued their winning ways against Medford as they won all 11 events and defeated the Raiders 119-35.
After losing their first game last week at Jeffers, Michigan, the Hodags’ goal was to start another winning streak with a nonconference game against the Marshfield tigers in a game that was moved from Thursday to Wednesday due to the impending snow storm. The first period ended in a scoreless tie. The Hodags got on the scoreboard in the second period with goals by seniors Cody Everson and Layne Roeser to take a 2-0 lead going into the third period.
Marshfield scored one in the third to narrow the lead to 2-1 and then Roeser scored his second goal of the night and AJ Turek put one into the net with 11:09 remaining in the game for the 4-1 final score.
