Seesaw battle results in 5-5 tie.

ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. -- Benilde-St. Margaret's scored twice in the game's first two minutes but settled for a 5-5 tie with Wayzata in junior varsity action.

It would be just 77 seconds later when Jack Anderson skated out of the left corner, picked up a Gian Dante Aloi rebound and found the back of the net for a 2-0 lead.

The hosts maintained that lead for nearly 20 minutes before Wayzata scored three consecutive goals, taking a 3-2 lead with 5:41 to play in the middle stanza.

BSM tied the score with 2:31 remaining in the period while on the power-play as Nick Palmer moved the puck off the right-wing boards to Anderson at the top of the slot. He then found Dylan Popehn on the left side and he scored from the outside of the left circle to tie the game.

Each team would scored twice in the final 17 minutes with the Red Knights regaining the lead just 33 seconds into the final stanza.

Popehn picked up a loose puck behind the net and passed to Westan Quirk in the right circle. Moving across the slot, Quirk spun and fired a shot passed Wayzata goalie Evan Turek for a 4-3 lead.

The Trojans tied the game once again at the 6:26 mark but, with 6:01 to play in the game as Christian Beck and Wyatt Elder chased down a loose puck in the right corner of the offensive zone.

Liam Moser had the primary assist on a pair of goals in the 5-5 tie.
