Minor Championship: Maroon 6, Grey 1

Minor Maroon scored five consecutive goals to pull away from Minor Grey and earn ultimate bragging rights in the Minor Division with a 6-1 win on Thursday morning. 

T.J. Hale scored first for Minor Maroon, but the 1-0 advantage was short-lived due to a goal five minutes later from Minor Grey's Tommy Bourgoin. From there, the game was all Minor Maroon, with five players tallying goals and another half-dozen recording assists. 

Nick Nugent, Gabe Perron, Hunter Rudolph, T.J. Hale, and Carsen Somers each recorded a goal down the stretch for Minor Maroon, and Mason West dished out three assists in the five-goal explosion.

Major Championship: Grey 5, Gold 2

Major Grey concluded the 2020 NOW Prospects Combine with a 5-2 championship win over Major Gold, a testament to the Major Grey squad's balance and depth. 

Five players scored in the win for Major Grey, including four consecutive goals recorded from late in the first half through the end of the game. 

Major Gold took a 2-1 lead in the first half on a pair of goals by Michael Mathison and Cade Allmendinger, erasing the 1-0 lead created by Dylan Otten's opening goal.

Unlike the skies overhead in West Fargo, Grey reigned for the rest of the contest. Grant Matushak, Conner Pirsig, Graham Greeder, and Quintin Schaefer scored in succession to complete the (mild) comeback and emerge victorious for Major Grey.
