The Great Neck Wolverines Hockey team, sponsored by Great Neck PAL, moved to 12-2-2 with a 7-4 win against Sewanhaka last week. It was a heart pounding game with a lot of energy from both sides. Great Neck came out fast, as they did the night before in their 5-0 win vs. Massapequa. They took a 3-0 lead on Sewanhaka early in the first period. Late in the period the lead was cut to 3-1. The Wolverines came up big in a crucial time of the game when they were down two men to start the second period for a full two minutes.

From there, Great Neck was able to fend off Sewanhaka to come out with a 7-4 win. The Wolverines also played a game this past Monday, Jan. 31 at Parkwood.
