The Blue Devils struck first when Gabby Olson iced a power play goal at 12:11 of the opening period with assists from Abby Ecker and Kayla Sayovitz.

Prairie Centre's Ally Ecker took a feed from Kenzie Christianson 2:29 into the final period to knot the score at 2-2.
"I thought we played good enough to beat them, but sometimes puck luck plays into a game. We had a few opportunities to put a few rebounds into the net, but did not get it done," Prairie Centre coach Bob Bergman said."
Mackenzie Och turned away 14 of the 17 shots she faced in the loss. Paige Erickson tended goal at a .909 clip stopping 20 of Prairie Centre's 22 shots.
The loss dropped Bob Bergman's Blue Devils to 6-6-1.
