Adam Stacho, middle, is congratulated by his Bismarck Bobcats teammates Simon Morberg (21) and Cooper Haar (18) after scoring a goal in the first period against Aberdeen Saturday night at the VFW Sports Center.


Six different players notched goals as the Bismarck Bobcats rolled to a win over NAHL Central Division rival Brookings on Saturday night at VFW Sports Center.

Lukas Millen started the scoring and finished it for Bismarck in a 7-0 rout of the Blizzard.

Millan opened the scoring at the 4:21 mark of the first period, and he scored the final goal of the game at 3:40 of the third to make it a 7-0 lead.

Millen and Adam Stacho scored first-period goals to give the Bobcats a 2-0 lead.

Michael Mahan and Cooper Haar added second-period goals for Bismarck.

Jacob Marti scored shorthanded at 1:44 of the third, the start of a flurry of three goals in just over two minutes.

Jake Olson notched the sixth goal of the night for Bismarck at 3:28, and just 12 seconds later Millen added his second of the night.

Ryan Ullan stopped all 23 shots he faced in posting a shutout.

Zachary Borgiel made 16 saves for the Blizzard before giving way to Benjamin Beck, who stopped three of the four Bobcats shots he faced.

With the win, the Bobcats moved a point ahead of Minot for fourth place in the division, just three points back of both the Minnesota Wilderness and Austin.

The Bobcats travel to Aberdeen next week for a weekend series with the division-leading Wings.
