BOYS HOCKEY: McLain’s goal lifts Warriors; Brainerd preps for Roseau


WILLMAR — Mitch McLain’s goal at the 8:42 mark of the third period proved to be the game winner as the Brainerd Warriors edged Willmar 2-1 in a Central Lakes Conference game Thursday.

Josh Archibald assisted on the goal and scored Brainerd’s first goal in the opening period moving him to within two points of the single season record of 66 set by Jerr Johnson in 1991-92.

In a rare occurrence, neither team was whistled for a penalty in the 51 minutes of play.
