Bismarck’s Paige Hanson scored the game’s first goal at 8:49 of the first and Aspen Eslinger made it 2-0 early in the second. Bismarck put 20 shots on goal in the second but got just one past North-South goalie Olivia Gowin
Promersberger scored twice 41 seconds apart midway through the second to knot the game.
The teams played scoreless hockey from that point on until Promersberger scored the game-winner unassisted on the power play at 13:41 of the third.
North-South now is 11-1-1 overall while Bismarck is 10-2.
