Little Falls dispatched Section 6A foe Alexandria 3-1 at home, Tuesday, to improve to 5-0 on the season.
The Cardinals struck first in the contest, scoring 10:40 into the game to take a 1-0 edge into the first intermission.
The Flyers didn’t waste much time evening things up in the second, though, as senior Ben Newman capitalized on a power-play opportunity 3:33 in to knot the score at 1-1.
Senior Taylor Drager then put Little Falls ahead 2-1 six minutes later off of an assist by senior Matt Stumpf, a lead that would hold until senior Luke Majerle buried an empty-net goal with two seconds remaining in the third period.
Senior Michael Stumpf stopped 31 shots in net.
