After suffering back-to-back losses to Hastings and Rosemount at the Louis Schmitz Holiday Classic, the Farmington girls hockey team got some confidence back with a pair of Missota Conference victories last week.
Rosemount exacted a little revenge on Farmington in Wednesday’s third-place game of the Louis Schmitz Holiday Classic.
The Irish, who lost to the Tigers 4-3 on a late goal in the first round of last year’s tournament, turned their luck around with a 4-3 overtime win over the hosts Wednesday afternoon at Schmitz-Maki Arena.
Having recently lost four games in a row, the Farmington girls hockey team will take a win any way it can get one right now. But Thursday’s victory over Rochester Century wasn’t relished by anybody on either side.
Farmington won its first five games of the season by a combined score of 27-7, but back-to-back losses to Shakopee and Burnsville have head coach Jon Holmes wishing his team had been a bit more tested.
At 4:05 of the extra period, Farmington senior Angie Schull tripped Cori Fairbanks and the sophomore forward went crashing into the boards. Fairbanks was taken off the Prairie Island Arena ice Tuesday on a stretcher for precautionary reasons, according to Red Wing coach Scott Haley.
