The North Stars struck first in the 1st as Colby Bear took a nice feed in front from newcomer Kian Bell and he snapped home his 1st of the season over top the right shoulder of Jared Thompson, 8:05 into 1st to make it 1-0.
The score stayed like that until the final 2 seconds of the 2nd period as on the powerplay, Zach Cain walked in from the top of the right circle and went bar-down on Josh Kotai for his first to pull the Moneymen even with Battlefords after 2 periods.
