The Hudson Raiders took a big step in securing the No. 1 seed for the upcoming WIAA playoffs with a 4-1 win over the Superior High School boys hockey team Saturday evening at Wessman Arena.
Wisconsin’s top-ranked Raiders improved to 16-0 with their second win of the season over the Spartans. Hudson also defeated Superior 2-1 on Dec. 2 in Hudson.
Both the Spartans and Raiders still have games against New Richmond, which is still in the hunt for the top seed with a 13-3 record.
Hudson plays at Breck (Golden Valley, Minn.) on Tuesday before hosting New Richmond Thursday. The Raiders also have games remaining with Menomonie, Rice Lake, Wausau West, Eau Claire Memorial, Chippewa Falls and Green Bay Notre Dame.
