The trend of falling behind early proved costly for the Ducks once again in its first of two games on Friday (Oct. 29) at the USPHL Premier Midwest-West Division Showcase event at Fogerty Ice House in Blaine, MN. 

The Ducks found itself trailing the Steele County Blades 1-0 in the game’s sixth minute and 2-0 a short while later, utlimately falling by a 5-1 score. 

Dells Ducks

Jack Kopfstein, the team’s ‘05 defenseman from Vista, CA hammered a shot home from the blue line for his third goal of the season the second of the weekend for the Ducks, but that was as close as this one would get as the Blades piled on another three before the final buzzer.  

Assists on Kopfstein’s goal went to Caden Glamkowski and Jacob Cartland. 

The first two Blades goals were both scored by veteran forward, Seva Bannikov, an ‘01 forward from Minsk, Belarus. 

Other scoring details for the Blades were unavailable at the time this was written.

The Blades and Ducks met on the previous weekend, the Blades capturing an 8-2 victory against a tired, under the weather and understaffed Ducks team 8-2 at the tail end of a three games in three days weekend. 

The Ducks were scheduled to hit the ice at Fogerty again later Friday against the Rum River Mallards before wrapping up Saturday afternoon against the Minnesota Blue Ox Saturday afternoon.
