Cardinals handle Old Abes to advance in boys' state hockey tournament

Feb. 20—CHIPPEWA FALLS — It was Round Three in the battle of two area powerhouse boys high school hockey teams Tuesday night. And this one counted....Big Time.

Unfortunately for the Memorial High School boys their third game against Big Rivers Conference rival Chippewa Falls didn't end up any differently than the first two meetings during the regular season. Playing to a standing-room only crowd at the Chippewa Area Ice Arena, the Cardinals shutout the Old Abes, 3-0, to live another day in the boys state hockey tournament.
