She drove baseline for a 3-point play, and on the following possession

Kings Drop GLHC Game to Houghton

When Calumet travels to the Dee to take on Houghton, the team knows what to expect. And when the Gremlins play the Copper Kings, they know what they are getting into.

Matt Ojala Leads Kings To Non-Conference Win

When it mattered, the Calumet Copper Kings played the hard-nosed defense that’s become the trademark of Mike Ojala-coached teams. Travis Ojala and Evan Ekdahl pushed and battled with the taller and bigger-bodied Ontonagon post players, while the Calumet guards allowed no avenues for dribble penetration. It all amounted to holding Ontonagon to just two points
