ONALASKA — With the main rink lights doused and purple spotlights focused squarely on the players, the Onalaska co-op boys hockey team had a movie-like introduction Tuesday night.
However, the real spotlight — and its accompanying heat — lies ahead.
The Onalaska co-op tuned up for its big regular-season finale and next week’s opening round of the WIAA Division 1 playoffs with a lopsided 13-1 victory over the Viroqua co-op at the OmniCenter.
The victory pushed the streaking Hilltoppers, winners of 15 consecutive games, to 20-2-1 on the season. The Viroqua co-op, which allowed its most goals in a single game this season, fell to 4-15-1.
