Aberdeen 5 @ Minot 1 – Aberdeen Wings goalie Henry Welsch made 33 saves and forward Clayton Cosentino had two goals to lead the Wings to a 5-1 road win in Minot on Tuesday and claim sole possession of 1st place in the Central Division.

In the 3rd period, the Wings netted two more goals including a goal from defenseman Pierson Brandon and another from Cosentino. Cade Stibbe scored Minot’s lone goal, which came in the late stages of the 3rd period.
