The Alexandria Cardinals topped Sartell 3-2 at Bernick's Arena.

The Cardinals jumped out to a 2-0 lead thanks to a first period goal from Josiah Gronholz and a second period tally from Tyler Kludt.

Sartell got on the board with a Josh Kern power play goal with just 15:27 remaining in the second period to make the score 2-1 at the second intermission. The Sabres had a chance to tie the game later in the second, but were unable to convert a penalty shot.

Kludt scored again for Alexandria early in the third, giving the Cardinals a 3-1 lead. Sartell's Lacen VanDenBerg made it 3-2 with a goal at 6:03, but that was as close as the Sabres would get.
