Fromolz Backstops Bruins to 5-2 Win over North Iowa

AUSTIN, MN – In the final meeting of the regular season at Riverside between the Bruins and the Bulls, Austin would come away with a big 5-2 win with the help of Tyler Fromolz’s first career NAHL win.

It was a rocky start for the Bruins to begin the night as North Iowa would jump out to a two-goal lead early in the first period. Blake Ulve scored his 4th of the season at the 6:15 mark of the period and seventeen seconds later, Simone Dadie would get his 6th. Those would be the only two goals allowed for North Iowa as Bruins starting goalie, Ethan Robertson would stand tall for the remainder of the period. Austin would get one goal before the end of the period from Gavin Morrissey off of a clean pass from Walter Zacher to make it a 2-1 game after the first period.

At about the halfway mark of the second period, Robertson would leave the game after taking a puck off the mask for precautionary reasons, and affiliate goalie, Tyler Fromolz would find himself in the game for the Bruins. At 15:47 of the period, Zacher would snap a shot past Bulls goalie Mitch Day to tie the game up at 2-2.

The third period was in control of the Bruins as they had momentum. The eventual game-winning goal would come off the stick of Josh Giuliani as he would go top-shelf to give the Bruins a then 3-2 lead. Late in the period, the Bruins would find themselves on the Penalty Kill when Jackson Luther would add an insurance goal on a short-handed tally for his 6th goal of the season. Moments later Austin Salani would seal the deal with an empty-net goal to help the Bruins come away with a 5-2 win over North Iowa. Fromolz would pick up the win in relief and would stop all 11 shots he would face on the night.

The Bruins head down to Mason City for the final time this regular season for a 7:10 match-up with the Bulls as they look to complete the weekend sweep.
