There was a lot of concern in the air that this was going to be the first winless season in almost a decade for the Morris Benson Area varsity boys hockey team. The Storm put that concern to rest with a 3-0 victory at Worthington on Saturday, Feb. 4. “It was a needed win, just for the guys,” head coach Jeremiah Day told the Worthington Globe after the game. “They’ve kept great attitudes all year, even knowing it was going to be a tough season. But to get that one is big for them.”
