Osseo puckmen pick up 2nd conference victory
Goals by Rudy Alexander, Tyler Stroh and Chris Madsen and a strong performance by goalie Connor Dahlberg led Osseo to a 3-1 win over Champlin Park Jan. 24. It was Osseo’s second conference win of the season.
The Orioles took a 2-0 lead in the third period but had to survive a late 5-minute checking from behind penalty. The Rebels managed to score once to make it 2-1 but Madsen sealed the win with a short-handed empty net goal with 15 seconds left in the game. Madsen, Drew Lofgren and Jared Vance also each had an assist.
The Orioles were outshot 32 to 26 but Dahlberg was stellar.
Conference leader Blaine dominated Osseo 6-1 Jan. 26. Tyler Sims scored in the first period to tie the game 1-1 but the Bengals exploded for five unanswered goals to pull away. Osseo goalie Alex Otto made 31 saves.
Osseo next hosts Armstrong Thursday, Jan. 31, and visits Anoka Saturday, Feb. 2.
