Indians still atop NAHL North

Even though they were swept by the Cleveland Barons last weekend in Cleveland, the Soo Indians maintained their first-place position in the NAHL's North Division.

Friday night, Ray Kaunisto scored the Soo's lone goal in a 2-1 loss that was decided in a shootout. Jason Kearney made 27 saves for the Indians (27-14-4).

Saturday night, R.G. Flath scored twice and Matt Jones added a single, but the Barons took a 4-3 victory.

Troy Redmann started in net and made 15 saves through 47:02. Kearney took over and stopped all eight shots he saw in 12:58.

Ending their road trip, the Indians pitched a 5-0 shutout against the Toledo IceDiggers on Sunday. Drew Satterley scored twice and Matt Buckley, Marty Gurnoe and Nik Sellers added goals. Kearney made just 17 saves for the goose egg.

Cleveland travels up to Sault Ste. Marie this weekend for games Friday and Saturday. Game time both nights is 7:00 p.m.
