Boys Hockey: Little Falls scores final six goals to rout Virginia
By PATRICK SLACK
Little Falls trailed host Virginia/Mountain Iron-Buhl (VMIB) 1-0 late in the first period in the first of two weekend road games, Friday.
However, with only 45 seconds left prior to the first intermission, senior Spencer Fenske buried a shot to even the score, starting a string of six unanswered Little Falls goals the rest of the way in a 6-1 victory.
Senior Austin Bjorge put the Flyers ahead in the fifth minute of the second period on the power play, then freshman Thomas Miller made it 3-1 on a shorthanded score six minutes later.
Junior Mark Anez netted a power-play goal early in the third, then senior Nathan Adamietz and junior Jack Schulte scored in the final three minutes to seal the victory.
Senior Michael Stumpf stopped 26 shots to earn the win in net.
