St Cloud needed a win and they got a fun one tonight in Austin. The final from the Riverside Arena was 4-3.
Blizzard got started early with a goal by last weekend’s leading point getter, Brady Bjork. Austin tied things up and we remained tied 1-1 going into the second period.
Austin scored first in the second period to take the lead 2-1. But the rest of the 2nd period was all St Cloud as goals by Jack Suchy (7) and Max Johnson (3) made it a 3-2 going into the 3rd.
St Cloud trailed late in the 3rd after a game tying goal by Austin, but it was Luke Aquaro (7) who buried home the game winning goal with only 50 seconds remaining in regulation.
