The Oahe Lady Capitals have just one game this weekend to focus on two points and it’s a game that is important for two points with the Rushmore Thunder trailing the Caps in points. Saturday, the Lady Caps will look for a season sweep of the Thunder.
The Caps were able to beat the Thunder 6-2 on the opening weekend to move to 2-0. Since then, the Caps have won just once and are 1-4-2-1. Even with gaining five points in eight games, the Thunder have picked up just one win since then and are 1-7 since. A win against the Thunder doesn’t mathematically clinch a spot in the state tournament but almost all but secures a spot in Aberdeen in the first weekend in March. Sara Bierne has been the hottest Capital since 2022 began with three goals and two assists in the first three games of 2022.
Coverage is scheduled to begin at 4:40 on Capital City Rock and on YouTube at Capital City Rock Sports with Jon Winkler on the call.
