Girls hockey: Goals hard to come by against Hopkins, Eastview


The scoring struggles that plagued the Farmington girls hockey team during last year's 9-17 season reemerged during a pair of non-conference road losses last week.

The Tigers, coming off a seven-goal eruption against Rochester Mayo, were outscored 11-1 in back-to-back setbacks at 15th-ranked Hopkins and Eastview.

Hopkins scored three goals in each of the first two periods and one in the third last Tuesday at Minnetonka Arena in a 7-0 win. The Royals outshot the Tigers 38-11.
