Green Wave Overwhelm Crookston; Wikoff Nets 4 Goals On Night

By: Timothy Oshie

East Grand Forks stole a page from the LSU Tigers football team from Monday night.


The Green Wave are back to their old ways in the EGF Civic Center. Fast, exciting high school hockey action was on display this night in the Red River Valley.

EGF senior forward, Joey Wikoff, exploded for (4) goals with a variety of goal scoring antics. Wikoff dashed the Crookston defense with his puckhandling and great scoring moves to capture a career high, four-goal night.

Defensemen Kody Vizenor also turned in a solid night netting (4) assists in the Section 8A conference win at the Civic Center.

EGF senior goaltender, Alex Christianson, earned the shut-out victory steering aside all (21) shots on goal for the victory.

Always great to hear from you on the site.

Have you voted for your favorite team yet?

If you should have more information regarding a pertinent "poll ?" please pass on any information.

I moved here in 2002 to the Midwest and would like to get as much information regarding Section 8 hockey as possible.

Thanks again for your post.
