Great Falls Americans came out flying on Saturday night, scoring twice in the opening five minutes. It would be their only goals of the game. Butte Irish scored five unanswered to win their fourth straight game.
Cade Holland, Andrew Browe (two), Brennen Morgan and Patrick Crooks provided plenty of offense for the Irish (13-18-0-0) to close the gap to just six points in the chase for the fourth playoff spot in the NA3HL Frontier Division.
Goaltender Braylon Rogers stopped 39 of 41 shots to earn his ninth victory of the season.
