North Stars sweep Team USA at home
The Traverse City North Stars have won five straight games after their two-game sweep of the U.S. National Under-17 Team last weekand at home.
The goaltending tandem of CJ Motte and Brandon Stephenson each tallied a win with Motte's coming on Friday night and Stephenson (pictured) getting the shutout Saturday.
Traverse City's 8-2-0 start marks the club's best start, but the team has never had a losing record after 10 games in club history. TC was 5-2-3 last year through 10 outings, 5-4-1 in 2006-07 and 4-4-2 in its inaugural season of 2005-06.
The North Stars continue their month-long homestand this weekend, playing host to the Motor City Machine in a Friday-Saturday series. The Machine (3-6-0) moved to metro Detroit this season from Southern Minnesota and will be making their first-ever Centre ICE appearance.
