MINOT, ND – Minot scored the first two goals of the game, but it would be the home team that came back for the win as St. Cloud skates by the Tauros 6-4 on Friday night. Rylan Jockims tallied two early goals for the Tauros who led 2-1 after one period. Jack O’Hanisain would add a second period goal for Minot, but it was tied at 3-3 after two stanzas. The Norsemen would come out firing in the third hitting the back of the net three times. Colby Woogk was the only tally for the Tauros in the period. Brady James had 14 saves for Minot on 19 attempts. The Tauros lead in the NAHL Central Division is down to 7 points over Bismarck as the Bobcats have won seven in a row, including a 4-1 win over North Iowa last night. Minot will try to earn a split of the weekend in St. Cloud tonight.
ALBERT LEA, MN. (MSU) – The number one team in the country wasted no time getting back to work and were just simply potent at the start of another four-game road trip. Minot State men’s hockey was in southern Minnesota to take on the Waldorf Warriors for the first time since mid-October. 1st-ranked Minot State (25-5-0) added another shutout win, taking a 5-0 decision over Waldorf (3-22-3). The game was highlighted by an offensive onslaught and heavy containment defensively by the Beavers. Early in the first period, two minutes in to be exact, was where the Beavers got going with the ice breaker. Waldorf had a fighting chance as the score remained 1-0 after the first. It would seem that way for a while until Minot was finally able to solve the netminder for a second time at the 13:53 mark of the middle frame. Nearly four minutes later, the Beavers thrust the lead further to make it 3-0 at the end of two periods. In the final period of regulation, Minot State would put the game out of reach with two more goals at 7:00 and 13:34 of the third to make the final score 5-0.
Carter Barley continues to surge as of late, with two goals and an assist. He recorded his 14th and 15th goals. Joey Moffatt got back on the scoresheet with his eight of the season plus an assist of his own in the second period. Reid Arnold maintains his goal-scoring lead after registering his 18th. Logan Rands was the other recipient, tallying his fourth goal of the year. Christian Kadolph carries on another fantastic performance from the back end. Add two more assists for the Beaver defenseman on the night. It was a rare occasion that both Riley Wallace and Jake Anthony sat from the sidelines, meaning Tre Sortland got his first start since October 13, 2023. He did not have to do much at all when protecting the net, as he steered away only five shots that came from Waldorf sticks. Minot State won their third game versus Waldorf this season and fourth overall since affiliation started with MSU Athletics. Both teams will be back to square off today at Albert Lea City Arena. Be on the lookout for an early puck drop, which is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. (CT).

Minot State 5, North Dakota State College of Science 3
Taryn Bennett continued her hot performance at the plate on the day as her two-run double ignited an early comeback charge for the Beavers, who erased a 1-0 deficit with a three-run first on route to the win. Hannah Murray added a sacrifice fly for a 3-1 lead in the first for Minot State, which got an RBI base-on-balls from Bennet in the second and an RBI base-on-balls from Lauren DeGuzman in the bottom of the third for a 5-1 lead. The Wildcats (1-1) answered with two runs in the top of the sixth, but Beaver pitcher Kierra Forunier (1-0) shut down the rally and finished off the complete-game win as she struck out six and did not allow a walk. Abbey Kelley added a 3-for-4 performance at the plate to lead the offense while Bennett had two hits and three RBIs in the win.

OXFORD, Ohio (UND) – Jackson Blake struck 1:24 into 3-on-3 overtime to complete a two-goal comeback and seal a 5-4 victory for No. 2 North Dakota over Miami on Friday night from Steve Cady Arena in Oxford, Ohio. UND (19-6-2, 10-4-1 NCHC) trailed by a pair of goals entering the final 20 minutes for only the third time all season but third period goals by Logan Britt (3) and Riese Gaber (14) brought the game level before Blake finished off a 2-on-1 rush with a snipe off the back post to seal the extra point in the NCHC standings for the visitors. Blake was once again dynamic in the victory, striking for a goal and two assists to notch his NCHC-leading seventh game this season with at least three points and extended his point streak to nine games. The sophomore has also torched the RedHawks (7-16-2, 1-13-1 NCHC) in his career and now has 15 points in seven contests against Miami. Gaber followed step-for-step with Blake tonight on the offensive side, also recording a trio of points with a goal and two helpers. The senior now has 13 career goals and nine career assists in 12 games against the RedHawks. Junior forward Jackson Kunz continued his strong play from last weekend, striking for his fourth goal of the season and notching the primary assist on Gaber’s tying goal for his first-career game with multiple points. Cameron Berg saw his goal streak come to an end at five games, but extended his point streak to six with a pair of assists in the win to give the junior 11 points over the last nine games. Senior goaltender Ludvig Persson had to battle in his first visit back to Miami, but finished with 27 saves on 31 shots, including a perfect 10-for-10 in the third period and overtime, to help the Fighting Hawks mount the comeback win. The Swede also tallied his second assist of the season and second of his career on Blake’s overtime winner. North Dakota will look for the series sweep tonight at 6:05 p.m. (CT) from Oxford.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Paolo Banchero had 23 points and six assists to help the Orlando Magic overcome a 17-point second-quarter deficit and beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 108-106 on Friday. Wendell Carter Jr. added 18 points and 12 rebounds, Franz Wagner scored 19 points and Jalen Suggs pitched in 15 points in his hometown for the Magic in their rally motivated by a lopsided loss to the Wolves last month when they fell behind by 30 points. Rudy Gobert had 22 points and 16 rebounds and Anthony Edwards scored 22 points for the Wolves, whose NBA -leading scoring defense has been hindered at times by an underperforming offense. This was another example of ill-timed turnovers and ill-advised shots, as the Wolves had just 18 points in the fourth quarter. The Wolves fell back into a tie for first place in the Western Conference at 34-15 with the Oklahoma City Thunder with the defending NBA champion Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Clippers hot on their heels too. The Timberwolves host Houston on Sunday.
