Wednesday Update: North Stars shine over Falcons
With their 6-2 victory at Port Huron on Wednesday evening, the North Stars claimed a fourth straight triumph away from home – the familiar confines to which they’ll return for the next seven games.
Will Badner potted a pair of goals and assisted on another during Wednesday’s win over the first-place Fighting Falcons, while Kyle Schempp kicked in a goal and an assist, and Michal Toman dished a pair of helpers.
The Falcons registered the game’s first goal with five minutes to play in the first period, but the visitors rang up a pair of goals in just over two minutes to grab a lead they’d not relinquish. Zack Dorer found the back of the net at 16:11, and Badner made it 2-1 just 2:05 later.
Schempp bagged what would eventually serve as the game-winning tally at 11:05 of the second stanza on a power play, and Alexander Taulien pushed it to 4-1 with 3:05 remaining before the second intermission.
Badner and Sean Murphy racked unassisted lamplighters to open the third frame before the hosts Falcons capped the scoring with 7:31 to go.
Kyle Laslo was busy (37 saves) while earning his ninth win of the season; His 1.92 goals-against average is currently sixth among NAHL backstops.
