Kerr tallied back-to-back hat tricks as the Hounds swept the Holland River Bandits last weekend at home.


On Friday night, the 18-year-old HowellMich., native scored all three of his goals in the first period, including what would prove to be the game-winner, and added an assist for a four-point game.


Saturday night, Kerr again tallied the game-winning goal as part of his three-goal outburst.


On the season, Kerr has 26 goals and 58 points for Hartland and is currently riding a 10-game point streak in which he has recorded 23 points since the start of January.
