The Ice Dawgs Squirts played in a four-game festival last weekend in Havre.

Facing Kalispell and remembering their loss to the same team last year at State, the Dawgs came out strong and fast in the first period.

Colter Barnett started the scoring right away. Kalispell answered but the Dawgs stayed strong. Aidin Wilkowski added one followed by goals from Lex Fairclough, Trevor Dulaney and another by Barnett to finish a strong first period.

Scoring was even for the teams in the third period with goals going to Jack Cornwell, Barnett and Dulaney.

Defensemen Michael Hoyer, Tatum Hansen, Zevin Kummerfeldt and Cornwell were all very strong, making it hard for Kalispell to break through. Alex Huber turned back 19 shots in the 8-6 win over Kalispell.

Taking on Havre next, Glasgow turned on the scoring for the certain win. Barnett and Fairclough each had four goals, Cornwell two goals, and Dulaney one. Tatum Hansen was in the crease, making 13 saves in the 11-4 win.

Kalispell came prepared to face the Ice Dawgs in Game 3. The scoring was even to start the game with Barnett putting two on the board. Kalispell would have four unanswered goals in the second period to take the lead. Barnett would add a hat trick in the third period with assists going to Hoyer, Cornwell and Wilkowski. Dulaney would also add a point.

Though coming back strong, it was too late to make up the deficit and the Dawgs suffered their first loss of the season. Hansen had 19 saves in the 9-6 loss.

Coming back from a tough loss, the Ice Dawgs were very strong once again against Havre. Adding points to the scoreboard were Hoyer, Hlad, Hansen and Fairclough. Emma Whitmer would also add her first Squirt goal. Dulaney added two and Barnett added six. Huber blocked 10 shots in the 13-4 win.

The Squirts are now 9-1 with 6 MAHA games remaining until State.

The Courier's spotlight on Ice Dawgs hockey has been rescheduled for Jan. 14.
