The Sturgeon Bay Clippers looked strong from the opening tap and never took their foot off the gas until the final whistle in an 8-0 win over the Algoma Wolves Thursday night. The scoring started early for the Clippers with Kayden Klotz finding the back of the net in the second minute of play off a cross from Olson (1-0). Then Klotz scored again in the 15th minute (2-0). FInn Stephenson, assisted by Will Estes, made the score 3-0 in the 18th minute and Klotz notched the hat trick in the 32nd minute. The score was 4-0 at the half. The Clippers started the second half fast, as they did in the first half, with a goal two minutes into play (5-0). That was Klotz's 4th on the night. In the 49th minute, Ethan DeNamur made the score 6-0, Finn Stephenson added his second, and the senior, who was returning to the line-up for the first time this season and was helping control the midfield, Aldo Rangel ended the game 8 minutes early with his first goal of the season. The Wolves Defense played strong as they were tested all night, led by Zeitler and Kirchman.
