'Super Saturday' ends perfect week

The start and stop, wait and see weather conditions have reeked havoc with the North Dakota sports schedules this winter, including high school boys’ hockey.

And Hazen-Beulah has been right in the thick of it.

The weather did clear enough for the North Stars to travel to Williston and Fargo Shanley this week as they split with the tough opponents. And according to head coach Mark Schmitt, H-B still remain in a stiff pack toward that goal of avoiding the game for West Region playoffs.
"They’re a whole bunch at that five to seven point range," he explained. "We are giving ourselves a chance to be where we want to be."

But anyone not at the Hazen All Seasons Arena last Friday missed where they should have been as the North Stars had hockey fans on the edge of their seats. They hosted the No. 2 ranked team in the west, the Williston Coyotes, and went into overtime.

Tanner Borlaug was not playing in the first two periods because of a separated shoulder. In spite of his injury, he came into the game in the third period and showed that he really wanted to play.

In the first period, the defense and the offense of both teams were pretty equal because at the end of the first period the score remained with how it started, 0-0.
