Memorial, North prepare for Crosstown Rivalry on Ice, Part Two

Jan. 30—Coming toward the final stretch in both regular season and conference play, the Memorial boys hockey team is preparing for round two of the crosstown rivalry on ice when the Old Abes host North High School on Thursday night.

While the Old Abes dominated the Huskies, 9-0, in the teams first meeting this season on Jan. 3, Old Abes head coach Mike Collins is taking nothing for granted in the redux of the classic rivalry.
