Alpena plays forgettable weekend

Three home games in three days meant three losses for the Alpena IceDiggers over the weekend.

Friday, Johnny Morrow (pictured) made 27 saves, but Alpena lost, 3-0, to the Mahoning Valley Phantoms.

In Saturday's rematch, Phil Greer stopped 22, but the IceDiggers lost, 5-2. Anthony McIntyre and Todd Rudasill scored Alpena's goals.

Then yesterday, Drew Pierson's goal at 17:37 of the third period tied the game at 3-all before Cleveland won, 4-3, in a shootout. McIntyre scored the first two IceDiggers' goals. Morrow finished with 27 saves and all five Alpena shooters missed in the shootout.

The IceDiggers play a home-and-home series this weekend against the Traverse City North Stars - Friday in Traverse City and Saturday in Alpena.
