The boys and girls Varsity hockey team played a double header on Tuesday, December 22nd. Due to a scheduling conflict the girls team was flexible and moved around Junior Varsity times so that the boys Varsity could play at 5:00 and the girls at 7:00.
“We wanted to make it work so that both teams could play,” said Girls Varsity Head Coach Ray Dahlof. “We had the ice scheduled first, but we knew that the boys would have done the same for us.”
The boys played an out of conference game against Rosemount, that resulted in a 1-0 victory. The team had many opportunities throughout the game, but only one goal was scored by Junior Forward Cody Elletson off a shot from the top of the circle inside the zone.
“We really should have won by more,” said Senior Assistant Captain Buzz Tryggeseth. “We had a lot of opportunities, and we made some good passes. We just couldn’t get the puck in the net.”
The girls played a conference game against Orono, that resulted in a 4-1 win. After two previous losses the team was excited about this accomplishment.
“Our passing was really good last night, we needed a game like that,” said Sophomore Defensemen Emily Ackmann. ” We all played together really well and it ended up being really fun.
Freshman Forward Katie Rooney received a hat- trick last night ( 3 goals in a game) and Sophomore Forward Prentice Basten received a play-maker ( 3 assists in a game). The other team goal was scored by Senior Captain Lauren Rosso, with an assist from Junior Bekah Wright.
