Bozeman Thumps Bighorns
Written by Merrick Parnell
The Helena Bighorns became the latest victim of the Bozeman Icedogs this past weekend in North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) action. The Icedogs swept the Bighorns in the two-game, home and home series to remain the only undefeated team in the NA3HL at 11-0.
The Icedogs beat the Bighorns 3-2 on Friday night in Bozeman and then 6-2 in Helena on Saturday. Hazen McKay, Max Schumacher, and Luke Hartge scored for Bozeman on Friday while goalie Domagoj Troha made 41 saves.
On Saturday the Icedogs took advantage of striking first, as Duncan McGarrah scored midway through the first period. McGarrah also finished with two assists, and was named the game’s first star. Five other Icedogs would chip in with goals of their own in the win.
“We were excited to get another sweep this weekend,” said Head Coach Elliot Bates. “We definitely have areas of our game that we need to work on and adjust after these two games, but still happy with the outcome.”
