Real life got in the way of a preview. But here is a recap from Tuesday’s games…
Roseau at Warroad
If Roseau’s coach held a post game press conference I imagine it would’ve sounded like Denny Green’s epic “They are who we thought they were and we let them off the hook” meltdown.
This game was Roseau’s for the taking. They took a 2-0 lead late in the second period when Memphis Mertens scored with just :21 left in the second. Warroad’s Hannah Corneliusen scored just :08 later to squash any momentum Roseau had gained going in the intermission. Warroad needed just 3 shots to score 2 goals in the third to escape with a win and keep their perfect season intact. The Rams outshot the Warriors 32-17 and they “let them off the hook”.
Chaska/Chan at BSM
BSM’s Olivia Haag has found her groove after a slow start to the year. She found herself with only 1 point over the first 8 games and the team’s record was 2-4-2. But over the last 9 games she has 12 points and the team’s record is 8-1. That is not a coincidence.
This game was all BSM. CC was able to pick it up in the final frame but their sense of urgency came way too late. BSM’s Anna Podein had 2 goals, Olivia Haag had 1 and 1, and Rose Beeman had the 23 save shutout. Rose, by the way, has been stellar since stepping in to the starting spot. Her overall record is 9-1 with a 1.08 GAA and .953 SV%.
BSM 5. CC 0.
Holy Angels at Bloomington Jefferson
This game was tight for 2 periods. The game was tied at 1s after two. Jefferson’s Celena Rea stole the show in the third. She scored her first goal of the game at 1:47 of the third. She scored her second goal at 7:06 of the third. She scored her third at 12:15 of the third. She added her FOURTH, a shorty no less, at 14:08 of the third. 4 goals in the game. All of them in the final frame. Wow!
Jefferson 5. Holy Angels 2.
Duluth Marshall at Hibbing/Chisholm
Hibbing came out fast and furious in the first (I love alliteration) outshooting Duluth Marshall 14-8 and giving themselves a 2-0 lead. But then Duluth Marshall scored 3 unanswered goals over the next two periods to get the come-from-behind victory. All three goals were scored by Victoria Thorson.
DM 3. Hibbing 2.
Andover at Maple Grove
Andover’s Peyton Hemp scored 0:56 into the game and that put Maple Grove on their heels right from the get go. That caused the Crimson to go into a defensive shell immediately as they got only two shots on net in the first. Andover’s Peyton Hemp had two goals, Jamie Nelson had 2 assists, and Gabbie Krause had 1 and 1.
Andover 3. Maple Grove 0
South St. Paul at North St. Paul/Tartan
South St. Paul found themselves down 0-2 after 2. The Packers’ Ella Reynolds scored at 2:17 of the third to get within one but North St. Paul’s Britanny Weber answered to get the lead back to two. Then all SSP did was score 4 straight goals in the last 10 minutes! Makenna Deering had back-to-back PP goals. Ella Reynolds scored the final two to give her the hat trick. That is 5 goals in the third for South St. Paul!
SSP 5. NSP/T 3
Mound Westonka at Waconia
Mound Westonka just keeps winning. 15-0-2 on the year now. Sara Larson got the start in goal and filled in nicely with 15 saves on 17 shots. Taylor Smith got some rest. Sydney Leonard had 2 and 2 and Sydney Hules had 2 and 1 for the White Hawks.
Mound Westonka 6. Waconia 2.
Edina at Minnetonka
Edina took out their frustrations from the Blaine game on the Skippers and gave them a beat down. The Kuehl sisters combined for 4 goals. CC Bowlby had 3 assists and Vivian Jungels had 2 assists.
Edina 6. Tonka 1.
Moose Lake at Proctor/Hermantown
Proctor/Hermantown’s Ella Anick scored a shorty in OT to win it. But get this…Proctor/Hermantown outshot Moose Lake 63-14! Moose Lake’s goalie Jo Wekseth earned her paycheck Tuesday night and darn near allowed her team to steal a win from the Mirage.
P/H 4. Moose Lake 3.
