BSM at Chaska Chan
CC’s season turned around when senior Lily Hanson started getting the nod in net. At one point the Storm Hawks were 5-4-1. Lily’s starts were spotty until the start of the year. She has been the full time starter recently and has a record of 8-1 on the year with 1.39 GAA and .925 SV%. CC now has a record of 15-6-2. Lily saved 20 of 21 in leading the Storm Hawks to victory over BSM.

Minnetonka at Edina
This one had the makings of another lopsided victory by the Hornets over the Skippers. Edina’s Lucy Bowlby opened the scoring 4:19 into the first before Tonka’s Lacey Martin scored an unassisted shorty to tie it up. The tie didn’t last long as Lucy Bowlby scored on the same PP that they had just given up the shorty on to give Edina the lead once again. Edina’s Annie Kuehl would score once more in the first frame for the Hornets to give them the 3-1 lead heading into the first intermission. Edina would extend its lead to 4-1 early in the second on a goal by Gwen Hendrickson. At this point it looked like Edina would roll. But Tonka mounted a comeback on goals by Kayley Crawford and Kylie Melz to get the Skippers to within one at the end of the second period. The Hornets’ Olivia Swaim scored the team’s 5th goal of the game at 14:47 of the third and it turned out to be the game winner.
Edina 5. Tonka 4.
Proctor Hermantown at Mound Westonka
The White Hawks of Mound Westonka remain unbeaten! They are 19-0-4 on the season. Heckuva run. Goalie Taylor Smith continues to be the backbone of this team. I would imagine she and Quinn Kuntz of Warroad will be the leaders in the clubhouse for the Senior Goalie of the Year Award. Taylor saw 42 shots from Proctor and kept 39 of them out of the net. Mound Westonka found themselves in an unfamiliar position- down to start the third. Mound 9th grader Kailey Niccum scored her 15th, and perhaps most important season-to-date, goal of the year with just just under 3:00 to play in regulation to force OT. 8th grader Greta Pioske scored the first 2 goals of the game for the White Hawks to give her 8 on the year.
Mound has two games remaining. Delano could be a spoiler on the unbeaten season. The last game between these two ended in a 3-3 tie. Waconia, in the final game, should pose no threat.
