The Sioux spoiled the opening of the Bemidji Regional Event Center and welcomed Bemidji State to the WCHA by sweeping them with two 5-2 wins. They played solid hockey both nights, and while they still have a lot of growing to do, so far, I'm very impressed with what I see thus far.
Some important highlights from the weekend:
- Chay scored his first goal of the season on Saturday night
- Trupp also got his first on Saturday
- Frattin got a hatty the first night and sealed the win for the Sioux on Saturday, scoring the 4th goal of the game
- The split rotation of the goalies seemed to work pretty well
As a Sioux fan, you have to be impressed with the team. The powerplay is extremely effective and in these last two games, the Sioux kept the pressure on when they had a lead. We saw last year they were unable to hold leads. Let's hope this trend continues.
