Alpena takes three of four points vs. Blues

The Alpena IceDiggers recorded three of four points this weekend versus the Springfield Jr. Blues at Northern Lights Arena.

In the opener on Friday night, Springfield was able to get out of NLA with two points after the IceDiggers let a three-goal lead get away from them in the third period. Jeff Miller led the IceDiggers Friday night on the scoresheet with a goal and two assists as the IceDiggers lost, 4-3, in a shootout. Drew Pierson and Ross Enmark added goals and Johnny Morrow made 31 stops in net.

On Saturday night, it was all Alpena as they jumped out to a four-goal lead after 40 minutes. Only this time the 'Diggers would not waste a 40-minute effort and walk away with the first IceDiggers shutout. Enmark and Erik Peterson led the way offensively and Morrow turned aside 30 shots.

Alpena returns to action with a Friday night contest against the Traverse City North Stars at Northern Lights Arena. The IceDiggers will be wearing special NASCAR jerseys. Game time is set for 7:00 p.m.
