Alexandria returns to the state girls' hockey tournament after defeating Morris Benson Area 3-1 Thursday in the Section 6A championship game at Willmar.
The Cardinals scored a goal in each period. Sara Rajewsky scored the lone Storm goal in the second period to tie it up.
The Storm pulled goalie Brooke Falk, who made 38 saves in the game, in the final seconds to no avail.
Alexandria out shot the Storm 41-19.
The Cardinals make their sixth trip to the state tournament in seven years.
It was the first section final for MBA. Benson reached a final, losing to Chaska, in 1999.
