BISMARCK -- The second period might have been the longest of the season for the Dickinson High boys hockey team Friday at the VFW Sports Center.

In a highly anticipated matchup between two undefeated teams, Bismarck High hit the Midgets with an onslaught of goals in the second period to come away with a 7-0 win in West Region action.

After a scoreless first period, Bismarck drew first blood with a Tyler Richter score just 55 seconds in.

Bismarck High's Sean Sullivan, who assisted on the first goal, gave his team some cushion with another score 3:30 minutes later. The 2-0 deficit was manageable for the Midgets until the Demons turned it up a notch.

Bismarck High (4-0) scored three goals in the next 61 seconds, including two in a row from Jared Hochhalter, who also assisted on the Demons' sixth goal late in the second.

Sullivan scored his second goal and his team's seventh midway through the third to cap scoring.

Dickinson (2-1) switched goaltenders in the second as Joel Otto replaced starter Grant Kovacs and finished out the game.

Kovacs finished with 14 saves while Otto had 18. The Midgets gave up as many goals in the second period as they have all season.

Bismarck netminder Drew Eichele stopped 11 shots in the win as the Demons outshot Dickinson 39-11.
