Girls hockey: Tigers avenge loss to New Prague

Email

Farmington showed some progress and exacted some revenge during a pair of Missota Conference contests last week.

The Tigers opened the week with a 5-1 loss at Chaska/Chanhassen, but played the league leaders much tougher than they did earlier in the season when the Stormhawks invaded Schmitz-Maki Arena and came away with an 8-1 decision. The team returned home Friday night and skated to a 3-1 victory over a New Prague team they fell to 2-0 on Dec. 1.

Haleigh Zwart gave Farmington the lead with an unassisted goal in the second period. Betsy Anderson added a score of her own later in the period (assist to Michaela Tonsager) to make it 2-0 heading into the third.

Grace Gavin capped off the scoring, finding the net in the third with assists going to Zwart and Haley Doll.

Goaltender Jessica Erchul stopped 19 of 20 shots in the victory.

On Tuesday, the Stormhawks led 3-0 before Chloe Batta scored the lone Farmington goal of the night on the power play. Tonsager and Anderson provided assists.

Erchul finished with 27 saves.

The Tigers (8-11) took a break from their Missota Conference schedule to take on sixth-ranked (Class 1A) Blake on Tuesday night. They take on another ranked 1A team tomorrow night when Red Wing, ranked eighth, comes to Schmitz-Maki Arena.
