This week was highlighted by St. Cloud’s play and the Top Prospects Tournament for the two NA3HL teams. The NAHL’s St. Cloud Norsemen took 2 out of 3 this past week and remain six points out of a playoff spot in the Central. They are in the middle of four consecutive games against the Minnesota Wilderness who they are chasing for that final playoff spot.  The NA3HL’s Alexandria Blizzard and the Willmar Warhawks seasons are over but they had multiple players represented at the Top Prospects Tournament. 

Norsemen Beat Magicians Split with Wilderness  
St. Cloud, MN – Brett Chorske’s four-point night and a red-hot power-play propelled the St. Cloud Norsemen past the Minnesota Magicians 5-1 on Thursday night.

In the first, St. Cloud got on the board just 3:05 into the game as Brett Chorske scored his 11th of the season. Later in the frame, the Norsemen needed only a few seconds of power-play time to add to their lead with Jack Reimann’s goal.

St. Cloud added to its advantage with Jack Suchy’s seventh of the season before Chorske would add a fourth goal, his second of the game, to put the Norsemen up 4-0. Late in the period, the Magicians would get on the board as Simon Falk found the back of the net.

Early in the third, Ryan O’Neill scored for the Norsemen, a power-play tally, to secure the 5-1 victory.

With the win, the Norsemen improve to 16-26-1 and will take on the Minnesota Wilderness on Friday, April 16 at 7:15PM in Cloquet, MN. Mark Shelley will provide the Play-By-Play on the Lyon Sheet Metal & Heating Norsemen Network beginning at 7:05PM on HockeyTV.

St. Cloud, MN – Two power-play goals and a stellar showing in net by Josh Langford led the St. Cloud Norsemen past the Minnesota Wilderness 3-2 for the team’s third straight victory.

Despite the Norsemen outshooting the Wilderness 12-1 in the early moments of the first period, the Wilderness took the 1-0 lead off the opening goal from Landon Parker. Less than a minute later, St. Cloud tied the game with Brett Chorske’s 13th of the season after an odd-man rush into the offensive end.

Early in the second, the Norsemen power-play gave them the lead Jack Suchy scored his eighth of the campaign. Mid-way through the frame, St. Cloud added a second power-play goal from Jack Reimann to take the 3-1 lead. Brendan Poshak would score shortly after to bring the Wilderness within a single tally.
