Roseau 3, Warroad 2 (OT)

ROSEAU - Jake Halvorson's goal 1:41 into overtime Tuesday gave Roseau a 3-2 victory over Warroad at Roseau Memorial Arena as one of the nation's great high school rivalries produced yet another thrilling, nose-to-nose finish.

Halverson's goal, a blast off a pass through the crease from Noah Urness, was his second of the game and third point, as he assisted on Urness' second-period goal that tied the score at 1-1.

Warroad's Taven James tied the score at 2-2 with 1:39 left in regulation when he one-timed a pass from the far boards into a mostly open net.

Carson Pilgrim scored the lone goal of the first period. He leads No. 2-1A Warroad (12-3-0) with 17 goals.

Urness, the state scoring leader with 48 points, assisted on both of Halvorson's goals. Roseau improved to 11-3-0 with the victory over its longtime (the series dates to the 1940s) Canadian border town rival.
