December 28, 2013

Central Stars: Brookings forward Conor Andrle (top) and Bismarck forward Stanislav Dzakhov (bottom) had big nights to lead their teams to wins.

Springfield Jr. Blues 0 @ Topeka RoadRunners 2 - Two goals from Jake Kamrass and a shutout from goalie PJ Bridges helped the RoadRunners down Springfield 2-0 in the first of a two-game series at Landon Arena on Friday. It took most of the first period for Topeka to find its footing but, when they did, it was Jake Kamrass who found the net and the lead for the Runners heading into the second. A period where not much happened only that it bled into the third where Kamrass found the net again, this time on a power play giving his team a 2-0 edge in the final 10 minutes. In his fourth game against Springfield, Bridges is now 3-1 with two shutouts after batting away all 17 pucks-on-goal. Stefanos Lekkas made 46 saves in the losing effort. Boxscore
