Feb 25, 2018

Ridge Gerads posted a shutout, stopping all 9 of the Breezy Point North Stars shots throughout the game. The Granite City Lumberjacks took the lead late in the second on a goal from Braden Altena.

Braden Altena contributed with 2 goals and Owen Sikich chipped in with 2 assists.

In the second, Altena opened the scoring for the Lumberjacks with what turned out to be the game winning goal at 19:59 with helpers from Beyer and Sikich.

In the third period, Altena deposited a goal at 12:48 with assists from his linemates, Schwehr and Sikich. Dibari scored a goal at 15:27. Kaehler quickly followed with a goal at 15:50 with helpers from teammates Dahl and Buhl.
