A 4 goal third period lifted the Wisconsin Lumberjacks to a win over the Red Lake Miners who were playing their third game in three days.

Kyler Lowden started in net for the visitors while Trent Boryszczuk got his second straight start for the Miners.

Kyle Schechtel opened the scoring at 7:31 of the first on a great solo forecheck effort stealing the puck and putting it in the net for his 8th of the season.

Quintyn Sidaway would make it 2-0 for the Miners at 3:59 of the second period scoring his 4th of the season. Lumberjacks would make it a one goal game courtesy of  Connor McClure’s 5th of the season.

The third period was all Lumberjacks. Brandon McDonald would tie the game at 12:19 of the third with his 5th.  Tim LeRoy’s 2nd of the season at 15;23 would put the Lumberjacks up one.  Connor McClure’s second of the night at 16:45 would extend the lead to 2.  With Boryszczuk on the bench for the extra attacker Ryan Kayser sent the puck all the way down the ice into the empty net and seal the 5-2 victory for the Lumberjacks.

Kyler Lowden stopped 37 shots to pick up his 7th win of the season while Boryszczuk made 42 saves in the loss.
