MINOT — The Minot High boys hockey team did most of its damage Wednesday during a three-goal second period.
The Magicians added two goals in the third period to defeat Dickinson 5-1 in a West Region game.
“We played with Minot stride for stride,” Dickinson head coach Tom Folske said. “The second period was filled with penalties and they scored two power-play goals.”
Senior Jake Hoffer had the Midgets lone goal 6 minutes, 37 seconds into the second period. Junior Jayden Mink came on for the assist.
Andrew Keller led Minot’s attack with a hat trick capped off on the final goal of the game with 2:26 left.
“We were in the game and then they scored two quick goals,” Folske said. “After that we couldn’t dig ourselves out.”
Due to injuries to players on the defense, most of the forwards were forced to play double shifts. The Midgets had a total of 10 skaters.
Dickinson doesn’t have time to rest. It hosts Bismarck High at 7:30 p.m. today. for senior night.
