Girls hockey: Tigers 2-5 heading into Missota

Farmington senior Scootie Donnelly skates with the puck during last Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Rochester Mayo. The Tigers took a 2-5 record into Tuesday’s conference opener.

The Farmington girls hockey team wrapped up its pre-conference schedule by splitting games with a pair of Rochester schools last week.

The Tigers opened last week by scoring a 2-0 shutout of Rochester Mayo at Schmitz-Maki Arena. Halea Wright and Madeline Oines each tallied goals and goalkeeper Molly Singewald turned back all 17 Spartan shots to earn her second shutout of the season.

On Thursday the team hit the road and continued to alternate wins and losses with a 6-3 setback against Century at the Rochester Recreation Center.

The Panthers opened the scoring with a goal 10 seconds into the first period and led 3-1 by the end of the period. Michaela Tonsager got the Tigers on the board with a goal in the first period (assist to Oines) and Oines added an unassisted goal of her own in the third. Ellie Moser found the net early in the second, with assists going to Danielle Wright and Brooke Raske.

Maddie Bowe started in goal and allowed five goals on 17 shots before giving way to Singewald late in the second period. Singewald stopped six of seven shots.

The Tigers (2-5) hosted Chaska/Chanhassen on Tuesday and are back in action tonight at 1-7-1 Shakopee.
