Fairbanks Ice Dogs dominate magicians; Split weekend series

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Fairbanks Ice Dogs were able to secure a split over the weekend against the top team in the NAHL Midwest Division, the Minnesota Magicians.
The Dogs won Saturday's Game 5-1.
They jumped out to a lead less than a minute into the game and never looked back from there, scoring one more in the first period and three times in the second.
Parker Brown led the scoring efforts with two goals and an assist while Luke Mobley, Tanner Edwards, and John Stampohar also found the back of the net.
Goaltender Nate Reid stopped 13 of the 14 shots fired his way in his 60 minutes between the pipes to help secure the victory.
Now that this competitive series is in the books, the Dogs will now move on to the Springfield Jr. Blues in the Big Dipper this Friday and Saturday.
"I think we had a good sense of urgency, we were on the pucks hard. We buried our chances too which was good. That was a big win for us. We've got springfield next so to win two games against them and move up in the standings would be big. But yeah, good team win today," said Mobley.
