IceDiggers complete sweep of Rangers

The Alpena IceDiggers completed a two-game preseason sweep against the Marquette Rangers this afternoon with a 4-2 victory at Northern Lights Arena.

Todd Rudasill again led the charge with a goal and an assist while veteran Ricardo Yesue netted his first of the preseason. Newcomer Kerry Bence scored his first goal in an IceDiggers' uniform, while captain Nolan Craner (pictured) scored for the second time in as many nights.

Rookie Brandon Stephenson started in goal allowing one goal on 16 shots. He was replaced by local goalkeeper Justin Marzean, who made 12 saves on 13 shots.

The IceDiggers will now hit the road for an exhibition game against the Soo Thunderbirds (NOJHL) next Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.

Alpena will then host the Thunderbirds on Friday at 7:00 p.m. at Northern Lights.
