The Bulldogs hosted Austin High School on Saturday, and started out the game in tough shape, but pulled it together to seal the win.

“We played a miserable first period, but the way we bounced back was impressive,” said Bulldogs coach Shawn Carlson. “We played a really solid second and third period.”

Bulldog Luke Regner, assisted by Brett Zallak started off the game by scoring 1:57 into the first period.  Regner added to the score near the end of the period with another goal, this time assisted by Sam Wenner and Austin Braun.

Scoring for the Bulldogs were Braun who was assisted by Wenner at 2:30 in the first period. The second goal came a short while later when combination of Braun and Wenner push another puck through.
