Walled Lake Wild dominate weekend with three wins in three days
The Walled Lake Wild celebrated a perfect weekend on the ice with three wins in three days to hold onto first place in the Division 2 West.
The Wild hosted Northville on Friday night, when junior Lauren Fox stole the show. The 2022 first team all-state defenseman netted four goals with one assist to lead Walled Lake past the Mustangs, 8-3.
The Wild then headed to Bloomfield/Birmingham on Saturday, where they battled the West Division’s second place team in a thriller. Senior Lauren Willis played hero scoring the game-winning goal in overtime to lead Walled Lake to a 6-5 victory. They also picked up a new No. 1 fan that afternoon in Superintendent of Schools, Dr. John Bernia, who was in attendance with his daughter, Avery.
Willis and the Wild picked back up right where they left off on Sunday. The Walled Lake Central senior tallied five points on four goals and one assist to pace the Wild past Plymouth/Canton/Salem, 8-2, on Senior Day.
The Wild will take their six-game win streak up North this weekend for a tournament in Bay City. Walled Lake meets Washtenaw on Friday at 8:20 p.m., then faces off against Troy United on Saturday at 8 p.m.
