The Tomah/Sparta boys hockey team is 3-0-1 after a pair of positive outcomes.

The Timberwolves forged a 4-4 tie with Reedsburg/Wisconsin Dells Tuesday and went on the road Thursday and defeated West Salem.

The Timberwolves got a goal from John Christen with 1:18 left to gain the tie against Reedsburg/Wisconsin Dells. Six minutes earlier, Evan Long scored a goal that cut the gap to 4-3.

Tomah/Sparta got a huge effort from goaltender Gavin Hammer, who finished with 48 saves, including eight during the eight-minute overtime period.

Hammer wasn’t nearly as busy against West Salem. Tomah outshot the Panthers 34-19 and got a hat trick from Danny Amberg.
