The Columbia Ice Eagles and Waterloo-Freeburg Raging Bulldogs posted impressive hockey wins this past week. Following a poor start to their season, Columbia has moved past the .500 mark at 6-5-1 on the season after Wednesday’s big 3-0 win over Collinsville. Chris Wagner scored two goals for the Ice Eagles and Mitchell Cookson added the other.

Columbia next faces Edwardsville on Monday night at 7:15 p.m. in East Alton.

Meanwhile, the Raging Bulldogs notched two wins during the week. Following Monday’s 10-1 blowout over Jerseyville, the ‘Dogs edged past Marquette, 6-5, on Thursday night. The Raging Bulldogs sit at 4-8-1 on the season with four games remaining.
