Boys Hockey: Bjorge tallies four points, Stumpf saves 37 as Little Falls topples International Falls
By PATRICK SLACK
Senior Austin Bjorge had two goals and two assists to lead Little Falls past host International Falls 5-1 and complete a weekend sweep, Saturday.
Bjorge and senior Matt Stumpf set up Adamietz for the opening score of the game midway through the first period, then Bjorge netted a shorthanded goal just over a minute into the second to make it 2-0.
Bjorge added an assist on a goal by senior Ben Newman a minute and a half later before scoring his second goal, again shorthanded, later in the period.
International Falls capitalized on a power-play opportunity to score its lone goal in 38 shots with 45 seconds remaining in the period.
Miller pushed the lead back to four goals at 5-1 midway through the third period, where it remained the rest of the way.
Stumpf finished with 37 saves in net as he and the Flyers improved to 3-0.
