This week’s Throw Back Thursday focuses on a 5-3 come from behind win at the Larson Ice Center. The Wings got off to a slow start trailing after the 1st 1-0. The beginning of the 2nd was more of the same and Brookings was able to make it 2-0. 6:40 into the 2nd Ronnie Hein put the Wings on the board with assists from Bjorn Sigurdarson & Kyle Haak. Just 3 minutes later Tanner Okeson would get his first goal of the evening on the power play knotting the game at 2 all. Assisting on the Okeson goal was Michael Soucier. Brooking would add a goal late in the 2nd to retake the lead going into the 3rd. In the 3rd it was all Aberdeen, Kyle Haak would get things started just 5 minutes into the game with assists from Ronnie Hein & Sigurdarson. Tanner Okeson would add what would be the eventual game winner to his total for the night once again on the power play. Assisting were Zac Goodrich & Sigurdarson. Austin Heakins would add the empty netter with an assist from Brendan Riordan to cap off the Wings 5-3 victory! Andrew Shortridge got the win in net making 20 saves on 23 shots!
