All-Stars earn victory against Watertown

HURON — Watertown, which is No. 5 in the league standings, had three times as many shots on goal than Huron, which is one spot back in the standings, but it was the All-Stars emerging with a 5-3 victory on Friday on their home ice at Bergman Arena.
Huron goalie Jacob Wehde stopped 51 of the 54 shots he faced to help Huron improve to 4-4 in league play.
Despite having just 18 shots on goal, the All-Stars managed to get five of them past Watertown goalie Jared Fedt.
Huron opened the scoring with a goal by Lucas Snyder just over three minutes into the first period. He was assisted by Jackson Hook on the play.
The Lakers (4-6) would pull even nearly six minutes later on an unassisted goal by Drey Reihe.
With his second goal of the game nearly two minutes later, Snyder put the All-Stars in front again. He scored on a pass by Walker Schiltz to make it 2-1 heading into the second period.
Huron would use a power play to put the lone goal of the second period on the board just six minutes into the period. Xavier Erickson scored on a pass from Jacob Maas to stretch the lead to 3-1.
The two teams would trade scoring opportunities in the final period, allowing the All-Stars to secure the victory.
Jacob Gerber scored on an unassisted shot to pull the Lakers back to within a goal at 3-2 just over a minute into the third period.
Less than a minute later Schiltz found the net for Huron on an unassisted shot to make it 4-2.
Just over a minute after the goal for the All-Stars, Tyler Dailey scored on an unassisted shot for Watertown to narrow its deficit back to just one at 4-3.
Both teams then went scoreless for the next 10 minutes before Spencer Busch scored the final goal of the game for Huron on a power play. Schiltz and Erickson assisted on the play.
The All-Stars will return to action today with a 5:15 p.m. game against third-ranked Oahe in Pierre.
