BOYS HOCKEY: Jacks fall to No. 2 Greyhounds
DULUTH -- The Bemidji High School boys hockey team held close to last year’s Class AA runner-up Duluth East until the final minute of the second period, when the Greyhounds rallied for two goals for a 4-1 lead.
After a scoreless third, Duluth East took the win by the same score, improving to 3-0 on the season while the Jacks sunk to 1-3.
Hounds senior Brendan Baker had two goals in the contest, including the opener 1 minute, 27 seconds into the first period.
The Jacks struck back later on in the frame with a power-play goal from Chase Mock assisted by Nathan Mannausau and Andrew Dondelinger, but that was all they could get past East goalie Konrad Kausch, who had 16 saves and an assist on the night.
Broc Waldhausen made 40 saves in the game for the Lumberjacks, but the Greyhounds put three more past him in the second period for the 4-1 win. The goals came from Logan Anderson, Finn Hoops and Ryder Donovan.
The Lumberjacks’ road schedule continues next week with a 5:15 p.m. matchup Tuesday, Dec. 11, against Thief River Falls at Ralph Engelstad Arena.
