in Sports by

Before the Hockey Day Minnesota matchup between the Huskies and Mavericks, St. Cloud State‘s Head Coach Bob Motzko said we were going to see a great hockey game.   The Mavericks skated into the Granite City ready to play, and they came out strong. Connor Mackey scored less than two minutes into the first for the purple and gold to take the early 1-0 lead.

You may remember the last name “Poehling” if you recall the 2015 Minnesota high school state hockey tournament. The three brothers from Lakeville North, Ryan, Jack, and Nick Poehling helped lead the Panthers to a 32-0 season, and a state title. All three brothers are now freshmen at St. Cloud State and have been playing on the same line early this season. The relationship these brothers share is something most teammates never have the chance to experience. “I just think growing up together has helped a lot.” said Jack Poehling. “We’re not only brothers but best friends as well.” The only time the three brothers have been separated was when Ryan was in his junior year of high school, and the twins Nick and Jack went to Green Bay to play junior hockey for the Gamblers. “On and off of the ice we’re never really separated.” said Ryan Poehling. “I…

People’s reactions vary from standing by the athlete’s efforts to protesting them. Colin Kaepernick, quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, was the first of many athletes to take the stand starting in August at an NFL exhibition game.
