West's Priante improves record to 9-0 this season

TRAVERSE CITY — The Bay Reps scored twice in the second period Saturday to blow open a hockey game with the Tri-Valley Titans at Centre ICE.

The Reps won 4-2.

Zach Hill and Nate Wilson each struck in the second. Hill's goal was a power-play score off a Trevor Apsey assists, while Wilson's was set up by Zack Bargy.

Nick Sicinski had scored in the first period off Wilson and Bargy assists, and Hill added another goal in the third off Josh Hill and Apsey helpers.
