With only two wins in their first six games, the defending champs - Fargo Force are off to a bumpy start. While not all the games have ended as the Force would have liked them to, all the games played thus far were multiple goal affairs. This productivity can be attributed in-part to the play of 19 year old, forward Ben Meyers. In the past four games, Meyers has posted five goals and one assist. This weekend, Meyers came up big in a close game against Sioux Falls. Midway through the third period Meyers would score a much needed goal. Just 1:13 later, he would score again to keep the Fargo Force alive and force overtime. The Force would later be defeated in a shootout.
Ben is originally from Delano Minnesota where he played for Delano High and Team Northwest. He has committed to play hockey for the Minnesota Gophers under Coach Bob Motzko beginning in 2019.
