A larger drift down the road stopped the bus in Watonwan County, the Star Tribune reported.
“There was no way to go ahead and there was no way to go back,’’ Gibbons told the newpaper. “We were stuck.’’
While waiting for help to arrive, team members tried clearing the road with their hockey sticks, WCCO reported. That failed.
Sheriff’s deputies soon arrived and escorted the team to the Watonwan County Jail, where members were provided shelter and a hot meal, the television station reported.
"Boys enjoying county jail food," St. Cloud assistant coach Mike Gibbons tweeted. "Not making this up."
When conditions improved later Sunday, the team was able to return to the bus and go home, reaching St. Cloud shortly before midnight, the Star Tribune reported.
