Black Bears end regular season with loss

The Northern Michigan Black Bears ended their NOJHL regular season Saturday night with a 4-1 loss on the road in Blind River. Northern Michigan had beaten the Soo Thunderbirds by the same score last Wednesday.

Saturday, Anthony Perdicaro staked the Bears to an early 1-0 lead, but the Beavers rattled off four unanswered goals for the victory.

Elliot Hogue made 45 saves for Northern Michigan, who finished 27-15-6, good for fourth place.

The Black Bears now host Blind River in a best-of-seven playoff matchup that gets underway Tuesday at Big Bear Arena.
