Black Bears down 3-1 to Jr. Wolves

The Northern Michigan Black Bears are in a 3-1 hole in their NOJHL semifinal series with the Sudbury Jr. Wolves.

Sudbury took a 4-3 overtime win last night at Big Bear Arena. Northern Michigan took a 3-1 lead into the third period, but the Jr. Wolves scored twice to send the game to overtime where Jordan Cheechoo (younger brother of San Jose Sharks' forward Jonathan Cheechoo) ended it 89 seconds in.

Michael Herbert, Derek Stabile and Tyler Huskey scored for the Black Bears and Tony Stoehr made 32 saves in goal.

Northern Michigan's only win came in Game 2 at home last Monday.

Game 5 is Monday night in Sudbury at 7:00 p.m.
