BLOG UPDATE FROM ST. PAUL: Warroad Extends Lead To 3-0 On Mark McDonald Blast


By: Timothy Oshie

Warroad jumped out of the gate to start the second period of play from the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

Senior blueliner, Mark McDonald, scored on a 55-foot blast from the right point to push Warroad's lead to 3-0 just 2:22 into the second stanza. McDonalds goal was assisted by Micky Knox and Brock Nelson. John Hellquist provided the screen and jumped out of the way of the puck just before McDonalds blast went top shelf of "grandma's cookie jar". It was McDonalds second goal in three games with his ovetime game-winner over Thief River Falls in 2OT last Saturday night.

McDonalds goal was the second power-play tally for Warroad.

The Warriors outshot Litchfield 15-5 in the second period and have a 27-8 bulge for the game.
