by CHUCK FITZER
Red Wing 6, Chisago Lakes 0 The Wildcat girls’ hockey team will not want to dwell too much on the opening game of their 2013-2014 hockey season, a penalty-filled 6-0 loss to Red Wing at Chisago Lakes Arena on Tuesday, November 12. Red Wing’s Nicole Schammel had four goals, Reagan Haley had five assists and Emily Stegora had two goals and three assists to lead the Wingers to the win. The Wingers led 3-0 after two periods. The teams combined for eight penalties in the third period. Two of the three Red Wing goals in the third period came from the power play. The Wingers outshot the Wildcats 30-17 for the game.
Proctor/Hermantown 5, Chisago Lakes 4 (OT) Jillayne Gilbert scored with 2:19 left in overtime to give Proctor/Hermantown a 5-4 win over the Wildcats last Friday, November 15 at Proctor Ice Arena. And despite the fact that the teams combined for 13 penalties in the game, none of the goals scored in the game came on the power play. Amanda Franklin opened the scoring four minutes into the first period, assisted by Natalie Sandstrom, to put the Wildcats up 1-0. But Proctor tied it up just a minute later.
Proctor scored twice in the first half of the second period to take a 3-1 lead. Wildcat Sierra Stendahl scored with 7:27 remaining in the period to cut the Proctor lead to 3-2, assisted by Olivia Mechelke and Ellie Kimlinger. Three minutes later, senior Allison Borgstrom picked up the puck behind the Wildcat net and sped along the left boards into the Proctor zone. When she hit the blue line, she cut towards the net and, from the loser left circle, rifled a wrist shot past the Proctor goalie to tie the game at 3-3. Franklin scored a shorthanded goal midway through the third period, assisted by Borgstrom, to put the Wildcats up 4-3. It looked like the lead was going to hold up, but Proctor tied things with a minute remaining in the period to send the game into OT.
The Wildcats will host conference foe Rogers tomorrow night at Chisago Lakes Arena at 7 p.m. They will stay at home to host Hibbing in a 12:30 p.m. matinee on Saturday. Next Tuesday, November 26 the Wildcats will head to the White Bear to take on Mahtomedi at 7:30 p.m.
