Stars Rout Broncos 7-2

The topsy-turvy season continued Sunday for the Battlefords North Stars. 48 hours removed from a 7-4 loss to Notre Dame, the Stars bounced back with an impressive 7-2 win in Humboldt. Graham Hildebrand made 32 saves while all four lines contributed offensively.

The Stars took the lead just 44 seconds in. Cody Folstad scored on a point-shot that beat Andrew Bodnarchuck blocker-side.

Josh Roach tied it for Humboldt moments later and got a great chance to take the lead on a 1:17 five-on-three. Graham Hildebrand held his ground and made the saves when needed to keep his team tied.

The second period belonged to the Stars. Samuel Fortier, Colin Phaneuf and Luke Hannas all scored and the Stars took a 4-1 lead inro the dressing room after 40.

More of the same in the third. Tanner Schwab, Travis Cech and Colin Phaneuf provided the goals and Humboldt's only response came from Taylor Johnson.

The shots on goal were 42-34. Both teams finished 0-2 on the man advantage.

Up next for the Stars, a Tuesday meeting with the Kindersley Klippers at home.

Stay with Hildy, lets atleast get one goalie with some confidence and know he is counted on. Birch looked terrible the other night but i have bought a bungee cord to keep his butt in the net. Another thing i stayed around for coachs corner the other night that was a joke, 3 questions took 2 minutes. You know there is trouble when the coach gets a triple. good game tonight boys now u have 3 in row at home win those and have a merry xmas.

Come on both goalies contribute every player has his good and bad games.We have two top goalies and alot of talented players.Everyone just has to play 60 minutes of hockey and we be fine.Listening to the game last night the boys played like we all know they can.Good luck this week hope we can pull off another three wins to finish off the year.That would be great.
