Saturday Sports Report: Wausau West finishes second in state hockey tournament

Posted:
BOYS HOCKEY - State Championship

Superior 6, Wausau West 0

Superior finished the season with a record below .500, but still managed to being home a state championship. The Spartans came out firing, and never let their foot off the gas pedal en route to the win.

"We got beat I guess, that's pretty much it," West senior defenseman Adam Parsells said. "They out-competed us, outworked us. They put more pucks in the net. All around we just got beat."

"They did a good job clogging things up," Warriors head coach B.J. Brandt agreed. "They were physical with us, and often times we didn't respond well to that physicality. I think when you look at the season as a whole, where we started and where we ended up, I think the kids can be very proud of it."

The Warriors have now taken either first or second in four of the last six seasons.
