Great Falls High School Hockey Off to Strong Start

It's a good year to be sporting a Great Falls Americans jersey. The AWHL's version is off to a 21-6 start this season, while the high school team is 7-1.

"We're fun to watch. We work well with the puck, move it around and score a lot," says Junior Captain Blake Miller.

Miller and his teammates have been impressive while getting off to the hot start. The Americans have outscored opponents from Havre, Billings, Glacier and Helena a combined 55-12. Head coach Brandon Baker says the strong start has helped his squad really gain confidence, and that the younger players on the roster have really stepped up. Baker says the competition will really ramp up this weekend with league heavyweight Bozeman in town.

"Bozeman is probably top in the league. We have them Saturday night and Sunday morning. Looking forward to it, will be a good test for our guys, so, we're going to have our hands full. That will be a good test for us and let us know where we stand. I feel very good with our team and where we sit now, it will be a good test," Baker says.

Saturday's game is a 7:00 p.m. start, while the puck will drop for Sunday's contest at 10 a.m.
