The Great Falls Americans' offense had a big night, peppering the Helena Bighorns with 32 shots throughout the game, to go along with Willey Mack's shutout. The Great Falls Americans took the lead early in the second on a goal from Mcsharry Payton.
In the second, Payton opened the scoring for the Americans with what turned out to be the game winning goal at 1:18 with assists from Brandon and Matt. Kody put in a goal at 14:15 with a helper from defenseman Logan.
Great Falls’ victory was in no doubt helped out by Mack’s shutout, as he stopped all 25 of the shots he faced. Mack’s counterpart, Berglund, also had a big night, managing to stop 30 of 32, but ultimately fell short.
This win brings the Great Falls Americans’ record to (2-0-0-0).
