Boys Varsity/JV Levels
The Aberdeen Cougars boys hockey team led the Oahe Capitals 2-1 after the first period, but did not tally another goal over the final two periods and fell 5-2 at the Odde Ice Center. Aberdeen drops to 0-5 on the year.
The Cougars jumped on the visitors early grabbing a 2-0 lead within the games first six minutes. Logan Scheel opened the scoring with an unassisted goal coming at the 5:06 mark of the first. Mason Carrels would double the lead at the 6:43 mark when he scored off the assist by Braydon Jones and Avery Dean. However, Oahe would cut the lead to one on a goal with 16 second left in the first period.
The second period began much the same way as the first ended. Oahe tied the game at two with just 1:34 gone off the clock, then would get what would prove to be the game winner at the 12:31 mark on a Ryan Wedin goal. Capitals goaltender Riley Briggs would turn back 23 of the 25 shots he faced while Cougars goalie Hunter Wilkie stopped 30 of 35 shots.
The Cougars will host Brookings Sunday at the Odde Ice Center for a 5 p.m. start.
