The Bulls top line of Vincent Petrey, Chris Chamberlin and Aidan Wright led the way, scoring 8 of the team’s 13 goals and tallying 18 total points on the weekend. “I was most proud of our team defense” said Bulls head coach Austin Sutter. “Defensemen Jaxen Andersen, Burke Francis, Kameron Lewis, Brit Brookes and Trevor Dobbins had a great weekend.”
