Thursday night at the Ice Pond of Waunakee, the Warriors take on Sauk Prairie. With a win, Waunakee's boys hockey team could add to its collection of Badger North Conference championship banners already on display.
A month ago, it was Waunakee earning a 2-0 shutout of Sauk Prairie, but both teams have fared well in non-conference competition for the most part this year. Waunakee has lost just one conference game, while Sauk Prairie has lost two. If Waunakee wins, they clinch the conference outright, while a Sauk Prairie win with only one conference game remaining after Thursday night could mean a shared championship.
With seeding meetings approaching this weekend, the game takes on added meaning as the regular season winds to a close. Waunakee coach Eric Olson discusses the team, the season, playing in Division 2 this year in the first season of the two-division setup, and hype for a big game on Thursday night.
