The Bluejays earned a huge win against the Bulldogs (7-2-0 overall, 6-2-0 Big South Conference) Thursday night, improving their record to 7-2-0 overall as well as in conference play and moving them into sole possession of first place in the Big South with 14 points.

Sophomore Kyle Ahlschlager scored his 19th and 20th goals early in the first period, getting Waseca out to a commanding 2-0 lead. However, that lead would not last as Minnesota River would score the next three goals and take their 3-2 lead into the third period.

Goals by Leo Harguth and Griffen Krautkramer would once again tilt the game into the Bluejays' favor, but a Minnesota River goal with approximately 10 minutes remaining in the final frame knotted the game back up.

Charlie Huttemier — who also had two assists on the night — would ultimately send everyone home with a goal six minutes into the overtime period.
