The Sauk Prairie Eagles remained perfect following a 5-2 win on home ice at Sauk Prairie Area Recreation Center (SPARC) against the Baraboo/Portage Thunderbirds on Jan. 14.

The Eagles, who boosted their overall record to 7-0 with the win, outshot the T-Birds 13-3 in the opening 17-minutes and used that to build a 2-0 cushion.

Erik Peterson and Micah Hanson fired the goals with assists for Caeben Schomber, Hakon Peterson and Erik Peterson.

The lone goal of the middle period came from Campbell Koseor on a feed from Oliver Scanlan to get the Thunderbirds within one with a period to play.

Hanson’s second of the game was the game winner, 4:02 into the final period, but Luna Larson had the Thunderbirds within one again at the 8:51 mark.

Luke Mast restored the two-goal cushion for the Eagles 15 seconds later and Nick Mast added insurance with 4:50 to go, from Hakon Peterson.

Andrew Schaetzl was kept busy in the Thunderbirds’ goal, turning aside 39 of 44 Sauk Prairie shots, including an 18-5 margin for the home team in the final period. Kaden Stracke collected the win in goal for the Eagles, handling all but a pair of the 17 shots he faced.
