BOBCATS 3, MINOTAUROS 1
Adam Stacho snapped a 1-1 tie in the second period with a power-play goal and the Bismarck Bobcats defeated the Minot Minotauros 3-1 on Saturday at the VFW Sports Center.
The Bobcats moved five points ahead of Minot for fourth place in the NAHL Central Division, just three points back of the third-place Minnesota Wilderness.
Mitchell Walinski scored the only goal of the first to stake Bismarck to an early lead.
Alex Adams evened it up early in the second for Minot before Stacho gave the home team the lead just over 12 minutes later.
Andrew Bellant’s empty-netter in the third wrapped up the scoring, and Johnny Roberts stopped 27 of the 28 shots he faced to get the win in net for the Bobcats.
