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.

Goaltender Maddie Bowe made 23 saves before Molly Singewald came in to stop eight of nine shots in the third period.

The Lightning took longer to pull away on Saturday. They scored three straight in the second period after the first ended in a scoreless tie.

It was 4-0 by the time Haleigh Zwart got the Tigers on the board (assists to Brenna Raske and Rachael Welzin) with 12 minutes left.

Bowe finished with 22 saves.

The Tigers (1-3) are back in action Saturday when they travel down I-35 to take on Owatonna. The Missota Conference season begins Tuesday with a trip to Northfield.
