The Bighorns defeat the Wild 2-1

The Helena Bighorns' offense had a big night, peppering the Gillette Wild with 44 shots throughout the game. The Helena Bighorns took the lead before the halfway point in the second on a goal from Nicholas Noel.

During the second, Sietz opened the scoring for Helena with a goal at 8:46 with assists from his linemates, Cline and Lindberg. Oberg finally put Gillette on the board with a goal at 12:58 with helpers from his linemates, Conroy and Thompson.
