River Lakes goalie Nicole Wander is the story of this game. She was outstanding in net saving 35 of 35. St. Cloud seemed to have the upper hand in this one yet they couldn’t put one in the net. 4 checking penalties and 2 roughing penalties called between the two teams. Maybe a bit of a rivalry?

Rosemount at Eagan
Eagan held a 2-0 lead after 1. Rosemount battled back in the second to tie it up. The third period was scoreless. I tuned in to the live stream just as the OT was starting so I got to watch about :12 of the game before it was over. At the center face off to start the OT period the draw was won by Eagan to the right. Emily Cronkhite picked it up, entered the zone, drove all the way below the goal line, threw to puck to the net, and somehow it went in. Game over. It took literally :10.
Eagan 3. Rosemount 2.
