Austin outshot Minot 8-6 in the first frame. The second period featured one of the biggest brawls Maysa Arena has ever seen.  Chris Fischer was protecting his goaltender when a scrum broke out that sent nine players to the penalty box. At the end of two periods of play it was still 1-1. The third frame was as eventful as the first, the play continued at a high rate of speed. After no conclusion after regulation the game went to overtime. Both teams had their chances on the 4 on 4, but there was no conclusion after five minutes. In the shootout Minot was able to prevail with a 2-1 victory.  Austin will wrap up play tomorrow night at Maysa Arena. For live play by play action log onto Fast
