The Pine City Area Dragons defeated Mora/Milaca on Saturday night in the Section 5A playoffs by a score of 8-3.

The Dragons came on to the ice flying in the first period grabbing three goals in the first three minutes of play to give themselves an early advantage over the Mustangs. Mora/Milaca fought themselves back into the game about five minutes later scoring a pair of quick goals on their own to make it tight 3-2. Pine City rebounded quickly however and added three more goals before the first period came to an end. The Dragons ended the high-flying first period with a 6-2 lead that they would use to coast to victory the rest of the game.
