Taylor Smith waited in front of the net as the Dakota Ridge wingers worked with the puck in the corners. His patience would be paid off soon enough.
The puck finally popped out to him in the high slot and he put it past Josh Aycock for the eventual game-winning goal with 7 minutes, 47 seconds left in regulation as Dakota Ridge posted a 4-2 victory over rival Chatfield on Dec. 5 at the Edge Ice Arena. The win, coupled with an earlier 4-1 win over Doherty has the Eagles off to a 2-0 start to the 2013-14 ice hockey season.
