MayPort Area ended its three-game skid on Tuesday with a 9-0 win over Breckenridge-Wahpeton (Minn.). 

It marked the fifth time since 2018-19 that the Ice Dawgs scored nine goals or more in a game. 

“Everyone contributed last night,” Ice Dawgs head coach Chase Knudson said as seven players scored at least one goal against the Blades. 

“We talked a little bit about starting fast and the more quality shots you have on net, the more opportunities you have to put the puck behind the goalie.”

MayPort Area (2-3) outshot the Blades 50-7 and sophomore forward Walker McGillis finished with his second hat trick of the season. 

McGillis snagged his own rebound and fired one past goalie Noah Pfeiff with 14:02 to play in the first period to give the Ice Dawgs an early 1-0 lead and they never looked back.
