Port Huron camp gets underway Friday

The Port Huron Fighting Falcons began their second tryout camp of the off-season today at Hazel Park Ice Arena, where dozens of players worked for the attention of the team’s coaching and scouting staff.

NAHL Draft picks Easton Powers, Kody Polin, Ryan Miller, Alex Archibald, Derek Belke and Nick Schilkey made their first appearance in a Fighting Falcons uniform, with a morning practice and a scrimmage.

A handful of players from the 2010-11 Fighting Falcons took to the ice as well. Nico Sierra and Ian Miller scored goals in their scrimmage games.

All players will play a pair of scrimmages tomorrow. Admission is free to the public.

Fighting Falcons’ defensemen Ryan Teal and Bret Lewandowski will join the camp Saturday after taking part in the 23rd annual SC4 Alumni Association Golf Classic at Port Huron Golf Club Friday.

Lewandowski hit a hole-in-one on the 13th hole, the first hole of the day for the Fighting Falcons’ scramble team.

The Fighting Falcons hope Lewandowski’s ace is a sign of good things to come, as they continue their preparations for their second season in the North American Hockey League.
