On Thursday, Feb. 5, the Stars travelled to Sauk Centre, hoping to end their three-game losing streak. Even though the Streeters didnít have an impressive record, the Stars were careful not to be overconfident.

The Stars capitalized early in the game, scoring twice in the first 7:15 of the first period. After a barrage of shots on the Sauk Centre goalie.

Much to the Stars disappointment, Sauk Centre scored just 17 seconds after the Sorum goal. The Stars knew the game was not overand went on to score four more goals.

River Lakes: 3 3 0 - 6

In the third quarter, Jeff Haselhorst made a tough break to the net to power in a goal which cut the Benson lead to 3-2.
