Boys hockey: Warriors fight off Cards


WILLMAR — Preston Peterson and Hunter Schneider each scored twice but Brainerd/Pillager/Pierz escaped the Willmar Civic Center with a 6-5 victory on Tuesday.

It was an entertaining see-saw battle but the Warriors, who won for the 12th time in the last 13 games, outscored the Cards 3-1 in the final period.

“I thought we outplayed them,” said Cardinals coach Dan Tollefson. “I thought we took it to them. We did a lot of good things. It’s a tough loss.”
