The Mitchell Marlins boys hockey team fell in both of its games over the weekend. It started with a 3-1 loss to the Oahe Capitals on Saturday in a Pink the Rink game, then fell 7-3 to the Sioux Center Storm on Sunday.

Against the Capitals, Derrick Goldammer scored the Marlins' lone goal to tie the game 1-1 in the second period. Spencer Wedin, who had two goals, put Oahe up 2-1 in the third before a short-handed goal from Talon Griese extended the Capitals' lead.

While the Storm struck first on Sunday, Nickolas Robinson and Goldammer both scored in the first period to give Mitchell a 2-1 lead. Sioux Center netted four in the second and two in the third, though, as Goldammer's third goal of the weekend wasn't enough to spark a comeback.
