DEVILS LAKE — The Dickinson High boys hockey team can go into break comfortably sitting at .500.

Four different Dickinson players scored goals in Saturday’s game. Matt Pavek opened the game with a goal, followed by Kass Dvorak with 5:19 left in the period. McChesney and Turcotte scored both of theirs in the third period.
