FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Fairbanks Ice Dogs were able to rebound from their loss to the Bismarck Bobcats on Friday night with a 3-1 victory over the Cats on Saturday in the Big Dipper Ice Arena.
The Dogs were consistent in their scoring, earning a goal in each of the three periods.
It was the Perfect Start for the Ice Dogs as they were able to score 12 seconds into the opening period.
They then scored the lone goal of the second period about halfway through.
They then added the final goal of the night 16 minutes into the final frame.
Three different players scored for the Dogs.
John Stampohar, Kyle Mayhew, and Mason Vukonich were all able to tickle the twine.
Sam Ruffin, Robert Blueger, Hunter Wendt, Erkka Vanska, Jack Johnston, and Jax Murray all dished out an assist for the Dogs.
Logan Neaton nearly earned the shutout in goal, stopping 14 of the 15 shots he faced in his 60 minutes between the pipes.
The win brings the Dogs up to 10-5-1-2 on the year.
The Weekend split unfortunately saw the Dogs fall to third place in the NAHL Midwest division, but with 23 conference points they are only one point behind the now Second place Minnesota Magicians.
The dogs will have a chance to reclaim their spot when they host the Minot Minotauros this Friday and Saturday at the Big Dipper.
