IceDiggers swept in Cleveland

The Alpena IceDiggers continue to occupy the NAHL's basement after a two-game sweep to the Cleveland Barons in Cleveland over the weekend.

Alpena (6-24-3) has lost nine straight games.

Saturday, Phil Greer and Johnny Morrow combined for 36 saves, but the IceDiggers fell, 7-3. Drew Pierson (left) scored twice and Ben Kitzmiller added one. Steve Culbertson recorded two assists.

Yesterday afternoon, the Barons took a 5-2 win. Pierson scored two more for Alpena and Greer finished with 39 stops. Jeff Miller assisted on both Pierson tallies.

Joe Greener had a hat trick for Cleveland.

Alpena hosts the U.S. National Team Saturday night and then the Traverse City North Stars on Sunday.
