Published 12:05 am Tuesday, December 23, 2008

The Austin boys’ hockey team looked like it was going to score an upset win over in Albert Lea Monday.

Austin (0-7 overall, 0-5 Big Nine) scored the first goal of the game when Adam McMasters scored a power play goal two minutes and 21 seconds into the game.

But that was all the scoring the Packers would get as the Tigers scored 11 goals for an 11-1 victory.
