Facing the team sitting atop the West Region standing, the Dickinson High boys hockey team struggled generating chances all night long, being outshot by Bismarck High 32-9 and falling 6-1 on Tuesday, Jan. 30 from the West River Ice Center.

“I think with Bismarck, I knew we were going to come it and defend a little bit,” DHS head coach Dallas Kuntz said. “They certainly run a structured game. They skate very well. Defensively, I thought we held our own. They made a few plays that put them on the scoreboard and when we did get our opportunities, we weren’t able to capitalize or get the puck to the night like we wanted.”

Near the midway point of the first period, Dickinson lit the lamp when sophomore defender Brayden Urlacher scored after being assisted by senior forwards Drew Halsey and Dylan Pokorny, knotting up the score at one apiece.

However, Bismarck regained the lead later in the period following goals from senior forward TJ Ball and junior forward Landon Fischer.

The Demons expanded their cushion in the second period with goals from sophomore defenders Cole Sebastian and Mark Horner.

With the win, Bismarck is 9-1 in West Region play and are 14-3 overall. The Demons have outscored Dickinson 12-1 in their two victories.

“Dickinson is a physical team this year,” Bismarck head coach Mike Peluso said. “We knew that coming in so we’re trying to protect ourselves, match it compete….I thought overall we did a pretty good job.”

Sophomore goaltender Quinn Ackerman needed only eight saves for the victory. Dickinson junior goaltender Jarin Naab started in net and collect 20 saves before being replaced by junior netminder Riley Wittenberg, who finished with six saves.
