Two streaks were halted on one shot Thursday night at Purpur Arena.
In the end, however, East Grand Forks Senior High kept alive its biggest streak. The unbeaten Green Wave won their fourth straight boys hockey game, topping Grand Forks Red River 5-1.
Grand Forks Central gave the East Grand Forks Senior High boys hockey team its closest contest to date on Tuesday night. That just goes to show how dominant the Green Wave have been in this young season. The Wave used a pair of power-play goals and limited Central to seven shots on net as Senior High beat the Knights 3-0 at the East Grand Forks Civic Center.
Fargo Davies goalie Alex Kruger picked a good time to post his first career varsity hockey shutout. Dating back to last year, Fargo Davies was 0-3 in its last three meetings against defending state champion Grand Forks Red River.
East Grand Forks Senior High needed to find a new goaltender from last year’s team, which placed fourth at the Minnesota state Class A tournament. Junior Garrett Lieberg was the chosen replacement, but did not see much action tonight as the Green Wave defense allowed only five total shots on net en route to a 5-0 win over Park Rapids in the season opener.
