CLAYTON TWP. — The newly-reconfigured Swartz Creek/Flushing Pride hockey team opened its season with a 9-2 loss to Alliance (LakeVille/ Goodrich/Almont/Imlay City/North Branch) at Iceland Arena last Wednesday.
Cam Beckwith netted Swartz Creek/Flushing’s first goal with the help of Jake Castles before Castles tallied on an unassisted goal.
“Our boys played hard and will continue to improve,” said Swartz Creek/Flushing coach Ben Guzak.
Although the schedule is currently a work in progress, Swartz Creek/ Flushing’s next slated game is on Dec. 5 against Grand Blanc at the Dort Federal Event Center. — B.P.
