At a glance:

The good news for Devils Lake – sophomore forward Ashlynn Abrahamson tallied her first hat trick of the season in only the second game of the campaign. The bad news for Devils Lake – the Firebirds were still outscored by a 3:1 ratio, were forced to cycle forwards into the defending position and had a slew of skaters gassed midway through the game. The Firebirds will continue to look for that elusive first win against Williston at Burdick Arena on Dec. 4.
