WINDOM — Zach Bartosh netted four goals and one assist as the Windom Area Eagles boy’s hockey team used four power-play goals to take down the Morris/Benson Area Storm 10-6 Saturday.
The undefeated Eagles took a 3-1 lead heading into the first intermission on back to back goals by Bartosh and one by Devin Neilsen.
Bartosh finished off his hat trick with a goal just 57 seconds into the second frame to put Windom Area up by three. Morris/Benson Area cut the lead to one on Brody Gimberlin’s goal at 17:40, but the Eagles scored the next four to make it 8-2.
However, the Storm picked up two late period goals to shrink the Eagles lead to four before the end of the second.
Bartosh again opened the scoring in the third period on another power-play goal to make it 9-4 with just under eight minutes left. The Storm made it 9-5 on a goal from Mac Beyer, but Nielsen picked up the second hat trick of game a minute later to push the Eagles lead back to five.
With just under two minutes to play, Beyer scored again for the Storm, completing his own hat trick. But it was too little too late and the Eagles took the win 10-6.
Stubbe got the win for Windom Area, making 29 of 35 saves.
The Eagles (4-0, 3-0) travel to Richfield Saturday to take on Achiever NE Academy.
