Montana State Runs into Williston

By Merrick Parnell, Northern Hockey News

For the third time this season, the Montana State University Hockey team traveled to North Dakota to take on another tough opponent. This past weekend’s series pitted the Bobcats against the Williston State College Tetons.  On Friday, the Bobcats would drop a 4-2 decision to the Tetons.

“Williston is a tough team. I mean it’s very evident when we walk in and see the national championship banners that they are a force to be reckoned with,”  said  Montana State Assistant Coach, Brian Engh.”We competed well on Friday night, and it was a game that could have gone either way. Unfortunately, an unlucky break in the third period just killed all of our momentum.”

Luke Bing and Ryan Padden score for the Bobcats, while Christian Butler would stop 29 shots for Montana State.

On Saturday Williston State took game two 8-2.  The Bobcats return home next weekend to take on Utah Valley University on Friday and Saturday. For more info on Montana State Hockey, check out
