Northstars lose twice to Bruins in weekend doubleheader

The Norman Northstars lost two games to the Winnipeg Bruins at the C.A. Nesbitt Arena Feb. 1-2. 

Saturday’s game was a 7-1 loss, with the Northstars’ lone goal by Albert Sinclair in the first period. The Bruins’ Ethan Williment, a former Thompson King Miner, scored a hat trick for the visitors.  There was plenty of end-to-end action as the Northstars struggled to match the speed and agility of the Bruins.
