Cloquet, MN – A back-and-forth affair saw the St. Cloud Norsemen fall short in a 5-3 loss to the Minnesota Wilderness on Wednesday.
Mid-way through the opening frame, St. Cloud took the lead as Hunter Hansen deflected the puck into the back of the net for his second of the season. In the later stages of the period, the Wilderness leveled the game with a Gavin Rasmussen powerplay goal before taking the lead with an Evan Bushy tally.
In the third, Charlie Skinner scored his fifth of the season to tie the game at 2-2. A pair of Wilderness goals from Will Traeger and Mikol Sartor gave the Wilderness a 4-2 advantage. Jack Reimann brought the Norsemen within a goal with fifth of the campaign before the Wilderness would regain a two-goal margin from a Zach Michaelis tally.
With the loss, the Norsemen fall to 9-18-1 and will take on the Minot Minotauros on Friday, March 5th at 7:00PM in St. Cloud. Mark Shelley will provide the Play-By-Play on the Lyon Sheet Metal & Heating Norsemen Network beginning at 6:55PM on HockeyTV.
