O. D.’s Rant 57-14

Donald Lierman Sports Editor Dearest reader, I have been maligned for too little or too many words in this, our last missive, of the book of O.D.

Icehawks begin playoffs

Donald Lierman Sports Editor Two years ago, a defeat in the finals after a seventh game overtime loss to the Fort Wayne Komets left a bitter taste in the mouth of Icehawks’ fans.

O. D.‘s Rant 57-13

Donald Lierman Sports Editor Cheers to MSU’s NCAA tournament play. The naysayers didn’t have them even picked to make it through the first round. However, without their best player they made a great run. Usually, I would never cheer for any team that defeated Sparty. However, the Butler Bulldogs come from a second tier conference…

O. D. ‘s Rant 57-12

Donald Lierman Sports Editor The SC4 men’s basketball team not only made college history this year by making it to the national tournament but performed not too shabbily there either. The Skippers dropped their first game at the NJCAA Division II National Tournament in Danville, Illinois to Lewis & Clark College (IL) by a score…

Icehawks edge Generals

Donald Lierman Sports Editor For the first fifty minutes, the game was all Port Huron’s. The Icehawks flew up and down the ice, seemingly at will. The last ten minutes were a different story. Port Huron allowed four goals in the last ten minutes but held on to defeat the Flint Generals, 6-5, at McMorran…
