'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A 6-0 loss to Canon-McMillan is not necessarily the way Shaler hockey coach Curt Hetz wanted to start his season, but the play in the third period is something his squad can build off of.

“I told them to forget about the score, go out and play like it was 0-0,” Hetz said.

The Titans heeded their coach's advice and skated even with the Big Macs in the third period.

“We were down three defensemen, so I put a forward back on defense, so we were short up front,” Hetz said.

One aspect that looked consistently strong was the defense and penalty kill, which killed all four Canon-McMillan power plays.

Despite allowing six goals in 33 shots, Hetz said goalie Vince Evans played a good game. Evans didn't give up any soft goals and made several outstanding saves.

Hetz said this team would rely heavily on defense.

Players like Mike Klena, Austin Martz and Luke Grossman will handle the scoring.
