Peewees beat Santa Rosa for first time in two years
The High Sierra Wild peewee hockey team snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Santa Rosa Flyers last Saturday, breaking a two-year drought against the Northern California team.
High Sierra cruised to a 5-1 victory on Saturday, getting two goals from Collin Brown and the others from Payton Guttry, Cooper Stanley and Zach Ward. Wild goalkeeper Nando Ramos had a solid game defensively between the pipes, recording 30 saves.
Jordan Devlin and A.J. Adduci both added assists in the win for the Wild, who dropped a 2-0 decision on Sunday to undefeated Roseville Capital Thunder on Sunday. Roseville, which has only allowed five goals all season, scored both of its goals in the third period but only outshot the Wild 31-30. The two teams will meet again on March 5 at the South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena.
High Sierra (3-2-1) plays on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. against the Stockton Colts at the ice arena.

The Wild (1-6) will try and bounce back at home this weekend against the Santa Clara Blackhawks at the South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena. Saturday’s game is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. and Sunday’s game is slated for 9:45 a.m.
