The Hudson boys’ hockey team has played a lot of good games this season. But Saturday’s WIAA Division 1 state title game in Wisconsin Rapids may have been its best.
The Raiders dominated defending state champion Verona, outshooting the Wildcats 35-7 and scoring twice in both the first and third periods to claim their fifth state championship in school history and third in the last five years.
“Tonight was our most complete game of the year,” Hudson coach and Raider alum Davis Drewiske said. “Maybe with the exception of our power play, but five-on-five we did a really good job, and penalty kill we did a really good job. And that was a good time to put together a full three periods.”
