Section 1AA girls hockey: Tigers advance, 8-0

The Farmington girls hockey team took the first step in its pursuit of another state tournament berth with an 8-0 rout of Dodge County Friday night at Schmitz-Maki Arena.

The Tigers, seeded third in the section, got three goals apiece from Krystal Baumann and Hannah Alexander. The team plays again Tuesday night in a section semifinal at No. 2 Lakeville North. The winner will likely take on top-seeded Lakeville South for a trip to the state tournament.
