Sauk Rapids Advances To Quarterfinal After Moose Lake Forfeits
The Sauk Rapids-Rice Storm boys hockey team won’t have to play a play-in game on Tuesday after all.
Instead, the Storm will head to Princeton for a quarterfinal matchup with the Tigers after Moose Lake announced they would forfeit the game with Sauk Rapids originally scheduled for Tuesday night at Sports Arena East.
According to Moose Lake Activities Director Kathy Fredrickson, the Rebels were too depleted by injuries to compete.
“Through injury we were down to 12 players and no goalie,” Fredrickson said. “Parents were very concerned about injury….we have had a very rough season.”
The #6-seeded Storm will take on #3 Princeton Thursday night at the Princeton Ice Arena.
