ROCHESTER, Minn. -- North Iowa’s Tyler Burg and Bryan Broders set the tone with shattering hits.
For the Bulls on the second day of the USA Hockey Tier III Nationals, the hits kept coming in the goal department as well.
James Hughes scored less than a minute into the game and Patrick Sivets continued his stellar run at nationals by tallying his third goal of the tournament as North Iowa took a 2-0 lead over Bellingham (Wash.) after a period Friday morning.
I do not... I'll get some this period.
The one at the end of the period by Broders was huge as time expired in the first.
