Braves return to North Dakota with another season win
The Bottineau/Rugby Braves traveled to Minnesota last weekend for the Wadena-Deer Creek Holiday Classic in Wadena, Minn., and came back with another win for their season.
After a scoreless first period, the Braves overtook the Trojans’ defense for a Matt Olson goal at 49 seconds into the second, with assistance from North Dakota score leader Ian Amsbaugh.
Amsbaugh took control of the puck for the next two goals; the first assisted by forwards Adam Nelson and the second by Landon Rosendahl.
Forward Jacob Shriver topped off the Braves’ lead in the third quarter with a goal assisted by Adam Handeland.
As the battle grew more intense, the penalties racked up, especially for Bottineau, who spent 14 minutes in the penalty box for seven penalties, while the Trojans spent four minutes on two penalties.
The Braves will travel next to Kim Braaten Memorial Arena to face the May-Port Area Ice Dawgs. Results will appear in next week’s Tribune.
