Hockey coverage and some great performances

Hockey broadcast coming to MIPrepZone
We here at The Oakland Press have been audio and video broadcasting football and basketball games for two years now.
This weekend we will be branching out. We will be broadcasting our first high school hockey game. Our MIPrepZone crew will be out at the Detroit Skating Club Saturday night as Clarkston plays Lake Orion in an OAA Red battle. The game will start at 8 p.m. Rich Kincaide and Ben Szilagy will have the call.
Due to MHSAA policy, we can not air live video of the game. But you will be able to listen to the game live on MIPrepZone. We will have a story page up Saturday where you can go to listen to the game, and then, one hour after the game ends, you can watch it in its entirety. The game will remain up on the site indefinitely.
This is the first of two hockey games we intend on broadcasting this season. It's part of a 10-game winter package which also includes boys and girls basketball. So check back in to MIPrepZone Saturday to listen, then watch the matchup between the Wolves and Dragons.
