Wings fall 2-0 Friday in Iowa

Feb 18, 2023

   The Wings drop friday nights game to the North Iowa Bulls with a 2-0 shutout loss. The boys played hard but couldn’t get it past the Bulls goaltender Mitch Day along with tons of blocked shots from the Bulls.
        A solid first period for the Wings as they outshot the Bulls 18 to 9. They had multiple good looks and scoring chances but couldn’t figure out North Iowas goaltender Mitch Day. With no penalties it was an uneventful opening period as the score stayed 0-0.
        The second period was a bit different as the Bulls outshot the Wings 15 to 6. The Bulls were able to put two goals past Cole Moore. The first goal coming from Byron Hartley at the 12:36 mark as he was coming out of the penalty box sneaking one in making it a 1-0 game. The second goal came from Max Scott at the 18:52 mark making it a 2-0 game at the end of two.
        The third period was much like the first where the wings outshot the Bulls 13 to 5. Still, the Wings couldn’t get one through. Tons of opportunities for the Wings as they pulled Moore with over a minute left to play.
       The Wings get a rematch Saturday night when they once again play the North Iowa Bulls in Mason City with a puck drop scheduled for 7:10. We stay in second place in the Central Division with the loss tonight with hopes of getting the split and two more points Saturday.
