Boys Hockey: Warriors drop tourney opener


GRAND FORKS, N.D. — Jacob Ellingson’s goal pushed the Brainerd Warriors to a 1-0 first period lead, but it was short lived as Red River East defeated Brainerd 6-3 in Thursday’s quarterfinals of the Grand Forks Tournament.

Adam Fischer and Alexander Mimmack scored third period goals and Cole Smith had two assists for the Warriors, who dropped to 4-4.

Brainerd goalie Kyle Helmberger registered 23 saves before being pulled with a little more than two minutes left.
