After tough losses the Blaze and Hounds rebound for wins.

Burnsville 6 Champlin Park 0

 

The Burnsville Blaze erupted with four goals in the third period to defeat the Champlin Park Rebels by a score of 6-0. Taylor Sturlaugson made 19 saves to post the shutout. Zach May had two goals and two assists to pace his team to the Consolation final on Wednesday.

 

Zach King scored a goal and had two assists in the effort. It was King's second game of the season and he has sparked life in the Blaze game. Mike Dockry opened the scoring with aI deflection off Eddie Witchow's shot for the 1-0 lead. His goal stood up as the game winner.

 

Burnsville was able to work their game of skating and stretching the ice as the third period wore on. The line of Andy Pearson, May and King scored 4 of their team's 6 goals. Rebel goalie Zach Duberry was stalwart in goal making 32 saves. They improved to 4-5 on the season while the Rebels fell to 2-6-0 on the season.

 

Duluth East 4 Brainerd/Pillager/Pierz 1

 

The Duluth East Greyhounds were expected to waltz through the Schwan Cup of the Silver Division, at least by the MnHockeyHub observers. That was until they ran into the unimpressed Breck Mustangs who defeated them 3-2 in a tightly contested game that sent them to the consolation bracket. They faced a gritty Brainerd/Pillager/Pierz Warrior team that suffered a beat down to the Wayzata Trojans by a score of 7-1.

 

The Warriors answered the bell with impressive fashion as they went toe to toe with the #2 ranked team in the State. It took time for the Hounds to gain control as they drew two penalties in a row on the Warriors. On the second power play chance, the Hounds Joe Nelson scored his team's first goal as he backhanded the puck past Warrior goalie Reid Mimmack at 11:53 of the first period.

 

Jayce Paulseth scored on a beautiful goal to the shelf as he picked up a puck that Nelson carried to the slot one on one. As Nelson left the puck lying for Paulseth he brought the Warrior defensemen with him opening up the opportunity for the Hounds second goal at 14:21 as they took the 2-0 lead to the first intermission.

 

The Hounds took a 3-0 lead to the 2nd intermission on Joe Arbour's goal. For him, that marked his third point on the game as he assisted on the first two. Max Tardy exchanged goals with the Warriors Ken Ebinger for the final margin of 4-1.

 

Mimmack made 54 saves, some dazzling to keep the game close while the Hounds were 2-8 with the man advantage. Things got interesting late in the third as the Warriors had two five on three power plays but could not convert.

 

The Hounds will face off with Burnsville for the consolation championship Wednesday at 6pm.
