Lawry goes off for CL in 6-4 win
Chisago Lakes 6, Holy Angels/Richfield 4
Jenna Lawry got a hat trick and more against the Holy Angels/RIchfield Stars.  She scored the last four Wildcat goals, all on the power play, to lead the Wildcat girls’ hockey team to a 6-4 win over the Stars last Thursday at Richfield Ice Arena.  Playmaker Madison Lundeen assisted on all four of Lawry’s goals.  For the Wildcats, a power play that had been largely nonexistent so far this season – converting just four of 35 chances – came alive against Holy Angels.  The Wildcats converted four of seven power play opportunities against the Stars.  “We have been working on the power play in practice,” said Wildcat head coach Dave Burgen.  “We already had nice passing, but we encouraged them to shoot more.  The turning point of the game was having the power play unit put in four pucks in the net like they did.”  And the Wildcats themselves managed to steer clear of the penalty box for the most part, killing off the only Holy Angels power play opportunity of the night.
