Junior Hockey: Ice Hawks score biggest NA3HL win yet

LA CROSSE, WIS. — The Rochester Ice Hawks lost a couple of key players this week as Alex Paulson and Duell Buck returned to their high school teams.

Coach Nick Fatis said the losses took a toll on his young team. But after Friday night, maybe the losses only motivated the Ice Hawks.

Rochester turned in its best effort of the season, pulling off its biggest North American Tier 3 Hockey League victory yet, knocking off the La Crosse Freeze 2-1 at Green Island Ice Arena.
