The Red Wing boys hockey team was outshot 57-11 in a 6-0 loss to first-ranked (1A) Hermantown Saturday in Hermantown.

The Hawks (23-0) had six different players tally a goal, with Jake Zeleznikar leading the team with one goal and two assists. Jared Thomas added three assists for Hermantown.
Red Wing (10-11-1, 6-4-1 Missota) did a decent job of staying out of the penalty box but the Hawks capitalized on both of the Wingers’ two penalties.
