Ben Wild releases a wrist shot into the top corner of the Huron net for his third goal of the contest.

Griffin Clark and Ben Wild each completed the hat trick as Saline defeated Huron, 9-1, in a contest shortened by the mercy rule Thursday at the Ice Cube in Ann Arbor.

It was the second consecutive win for Saline, which improved to 3-5.

“We had a good challenge to start the season with four games against top-10 teams. We’ve had two solid games in a row,” Coach Paul Fassbender said.

After Tuesday’s emotional come-from-behind win against Gabriel Richard, Fassbender wanted to make sure his team stayed focused against a weaker Huron team. The Hornets did that.

“We got some guys a lot of ice time. It was a good game for everybody,” Fassbender said.

Cody Stein earned the victory in goal.

Also scoring for Saline were Keegan Bunting, Josh Peitz and Yanic Sadek.
