North Border (7-1) @ Thompson (7-3)

This is a top-tier matchup in Region 2. The Eagles are red hot and coming off an upset win over Grafton last week, they are looking to keep their 6-game win streak intact. The Tommies boast one of the best defenses in North Dakota only allowing 45 points per game. North Border has been flying under the radar to start the season. The Eagles will attack the Tommies with Jaden Lee (18.1 ppg), Ayden Stainbrook (15.4 ppg, 7.9 rpg), Trenton Cosley (14.4 ppg, 4.3 apg), and Jaxen Johnson (9.7 ppg, 7.3 rpg). North Border has size and skill with Stainbrook and Johnson. Lee and Cosley are tough defenders that can put up points on the offensive side. On the other end Tommies have Kyle Odenback (13.9 ppg, 9.7 rpg), Jakob Starevic (10 ppg, 5.7 rpg), and Sam Roller (8.6 ppg). This one will come down to the Tommies defense against North Borders’ potent offense. Whoever controls the tempo will win the game. Tune in Thursday if you want to see two quality teams from Region 2.
