Pines hockey focused on new division two crown
EAGLE RIVER - For the first time in WIAA boys hockey history, the 83 teams will split into two divisions.

Two state champs will be crowned in 2020 and Northland Pines has its eye on the division two crown. 

The reining GNC champs say they have some unfinished business to attend to.

The Eagles only lost three games last season with a disappointing finish in the sectional semifinals. 

Pines hit the ice last week and say the team is healthy and focused.

The players believe the new division will be an adjustment but maintaining the tradition at home matters most. 

"Our team motto is just washing people's feet. We want to be out in the community, we want to be helping out. We don't want to give the hockey team a bad rep. We want to be well known in the community and our main goal is to bring a banner back," said senior Brady Snedden.

The Eagles will skate 10 seniors this year. 

They hope to motivate the team to make this season the best one yet. 

"Pines hockey means the world to me. My dad got to play here his four years and he was fortunate to win a state championship and I hope to do that this year hopefully carry on the legacy of Pines hockey," said Pines senior Gunnar Schiffmann.

The team says the new dome renovations feel like playing in a new rink with an old-school feel. 

Pines scrimmages Lakeland Thursday at 5.

Packers hold on in final seconds, top Panthers
GREEN BAY - GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)  Preston Smith and Green Bay's defense stopped Christian McCaffrey at the goal line as time expired and the Packers defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-16 on a snowy Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Aaron Jones scored three rushing touchdowns for the second time this season to lead Green Bay (8-2), which improved to 5-2 all-time against the Panthers at home.

The Panthers got the ball back with 2:25 left on their own 11-yard line, trailing by eight. Quarterback Kyle Allen drove Carolina down the field, including completing a 12-yard pass to D.J. Moore on fourth-and-10 with 56 seconds left. The Panthers also benefited from an offsides penalty with 13 seconds remaining to convert another fourth down. After Allen threw an incompletion to McCaffrey, the Packers stopped him just short of the end zone as time expired. A brief replay review upheld the call.
