Blue team edges white team 7-5.
The following was submitted to White Lake Patch by Pat Kalinowski. The fans came out to support the Lakeland Eagle Varsity Hockey Program last Friday night for the annual Blue - White Alumni game.

Commerce resident Jimmy Vish has organized a charitable hockey game Saturday in Fraser to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Commerce Township resident and 2008 Lakeland High School graduate Jimmy Vish may not have scored the winning goal for a state championship high school game, nor was he a star hockey player in the high school ranks. But his impact as a hockey player is turning out to be more significant in the lives of area children and teens than wins in high school could ever mean. That's because Vish is a driving force behind the Great Lakes Summer Classic, being held at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Great Lakes Sports City ice arena in Fraser. Vish is using his love of the sport and a friendly rivalry with a boyhood pal to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan. The puck will drop on the charity game at 8 p.m. Teams have been recruited by …

Following a players-only closed door meeting to address the teams issues, the Lakeland Eagles routed the Milford Mavericks, 6-2, in the battle for the Barber’s Cup Wednesday night at the Lakeland Tri-Arena. “This was huge for us. They did this (meeting) all on their own,” Lakeland head coach Tim Ronayne said. “They did a lot of off-ice stuff. To come back from a losing effort last night and be able to pick it up says a lot. The rivalry between these two schools is immense.” “This (game) was everything to us,” player Evan Ronayne said. Lakeland has had possession of the trophy for the past four years. Last year ended in a tie and with Lakeland winning the first game, they will retain possession of the trophy. Milford has owned the trophy …
