After four points in the 7-5 loss to Wadena Deer Creek Monday, Feb. 5, freshman Zach Bruns became the season points leader in Section 6A. Bruns, the only freshman on the top 12 list, has 53 points this season.

Breckenridge/Wahpeton's Jase Jensen and Nolan Wamre round out the top three with 48 and 47 points, respectively. Bruns has been the leading scorer in the section for much of the season.

Wadena Deer Creek scored six goals in the final two periods to upset an impressive scoring night from the Morris Benson Area Storm Monday evening in Wadena.

Zach Bruns and Kolby Goff both finished with a goal and three assists for the Storm, but Max Phillips and Andrew Sundby finished with two-goal games to help WDC.

The Storm is next in action Thursday, Feb. 8 against Prairie Centre at 7 p.m. in Benson. Then MBA closes out the regular season next week at Breckenridge / Wahpeton Tuesday, Feb. 13 before hosting Marshall Thursday, Feb. 15.
