Mack Strong

Junior forward for the 2015-16 Alexandria Cardinal Boys' Hockey team.

(Alexandria, MN) -- The Cardinal Sports Report for today includes some recaps from the Boys' Hockey competition Tuesday night and previews the schedule ahead for later on Thursday.

The audio included in the report (accessible by clicking on the player below) includes two segments from Bruce Hanstad from the Alexandria Boys' Hockey coaching staff. His summary on Tuesday's Varsity game at Richmond notes the forward line that included Mack Strong, Jack Steffl, and Derek Berning was extremely productive in the game. That line accounted for all four goals, in Alexandria's 4-2 win over the River Lakes Stars. Coach Hanstad also has a summary on the Cardinal JV win in Richmond on Tuesday.
