Valley City faced all-State talent-laden West Fargo in Thursdayâ€™s 7-2 road loss, but such a challenge is just what a youthful team needs.
â€śMany positives today,â€ť Valley City head coach Matt Nielson said. â€śWe focused on footwork yesterday and we were better today. We preached location on our shots and the players responded.
