The Cardinals then rounded out the week with an 8-6 loss.

They were once again led by Noah Peterson, who scored four of the team’s six goals. Lucas Forry added in the other two.

“Fatigue factored into the last game of the day,” Coach Peterson said. “With only one sub available, the Cardinals had difficulty finding the net.”
