Goalie Bryce Kamenick (Eau Claire, WI) had a great game with 39 saves. Clayton Huss (Pleasant Hill, IA) had two goals. Wes Morales (Fort Collins, CO) and Adan Sigala (Douglas, WY) notched the other goals. Wilson Anderle (Buffalo, MN) distributed three assists.
The Blades are in third place in the Minnesota Division of the Minnesota Junior Hockey League.
