Arlington/Midlothian hockey

The Arlington/Midlothian varsity hockey team hung onto second place in the south division in AT&T Metroplex summer league play with a 4-2 defeat of Grapevine/Colleyville on June 27.

The 7-1 club, which trails Coppell by one game, didn’t play last week because of the July 4 holiday.

Against Grapevine/Colleyville, Arlington/Midlothian was led by Reilly Branch’s two first-period goals. Also chipping in goals in the first frame were Kyle Carpenter and Ross Roberts. Roberts and Branch each had a short-handed score.

Landon Ruhde minded the net for Arlington/Midlothian, saving 15 shots to collect his third win.

Arlington/Midlothian takes on Birdville at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Euless Dr Pepper StarCenter.

The club wraps its summer season the following week against Coppell.
