Bismarck storms through DHS girls hockey

The Bismarck Blizzard entered Tuesday's game with Dickinson High with just two losses on the season -- both to out-of-state teams -- and the offense they displayed at the West River Ice Center proved why.

The Bismarck Blizzard entered Tuesday's game with Dickinson High with just two losses on the season - both to out-of-state teams - and the offense they displayed at the West River Ice Center proved why.

Seven Blizzard players scored in what turned into a 12-4 victory over the Midgets.

"Bismarck is the best team in the state, and it showed tonight," Dickinson head coach Al Takle said. "They brought a level of speed and physical play that we haven't seen yet this season. That said, I thought we really battled hard and scored when the opportunity presented itself."

The Midgets (2-6) received two goals from Taia Klaman - one in the first period and one in the second - and one goal each from Emily Keller and Paige Schweitzer.

Bismarck's attack was too much to contend with, however. Bismarck scored five goals in each of the first two periods.

Britta Curl scored three times in the opening period, putting the Blizzard ahead 5-2 after the opener. She tallied a fourth goal in the second period. Kaitlyn Page and Makenzie Fetch each scored twice for Bismarck (9-2) as well.

Dickinson goalie Grace Kraiter stopped 26 shots over the first two periods, and Baylee Kram blocked 16 more in the third.
