SUPERIOR — Nick Cherkowski and Jack Sampson scored first-period goals as Marian started fast and then skated to a 2-1 victory over St. Scholastica in their Superior Showdown men’s hockey opener Thursday at Wessman Arena.

Nathan Adrian scored on an assist from Mountain Iron’s Jacob Seitz at 16:32 in the third period to pull the Saints to within a goal but they would get no closer, as goalie Colby Muise had 24 saves for the Sabres (4-8), including 10 stops in each of the last two periods.

Jack Bostedt had 27 saves to lead CSS (5-4-1).

St. Scholastica and Wisconsin-Superior play in the Superior Showdown consolation game at 3 p.m. Friday at Wessman Arena while Marian and Gustavus play for the championship at 7 p.m.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
