On Saturday (10/17/20), Marquette faced Houghton in the only game of the U.P. Championships. Kingsford and Iron Mountain were unable to participate in the event as a result of the switch to virtual learning for schools in Dickinson County. The game was played on a frost covered field in the snow in Marquette.
Senior Connor Johnson got the scoring started with an assist credited to junior Nick Lindberg. Sophomore Max Dawson scored the first of his three goals off an assist from sophomore Nick Asmus. First half scoring then wrapped up with a goal from Lindberg which was assisted by Johnson. Senior Liam Jeevar faced two shots in net.
In the second half, Marquette continued rolling with another Max Dawson goal assisted by Asmus. Sophomore Ezra Pikard scored an unassisted goal from a corner kick to make it 5-0. The sixth goal came from Johnson assisted by Dawson and then Dawson finished the scoring with an assist going to junior Zane Phillips. Jeevar faced one shot in net in the second half.
The win capped an undefeated season for MSHS, which went 9-0-1 and outscored their opponents 63-4 during the campaign. The win marks the 13th straight U.P. Championship for Marquette.
From Head Coach Dan Salmon:
“We build our team around our defense and our primary goal is to not get scored on. With that in place and working, the offense came to life and put a lot of goals in this year. It made for a great winning combination and it shows. With the uncertain season as it unfolded and games being canceled, we were just happy to make it to the end as a healthy group and still be playing games“
