Storm streak of wins continues
The Morris Benson Area girls' hockey team picked up two more wins hosting Marshall Thursday and Worthington Saturday.
The Lee Community Center in Morris was the site for senior night Thursday when the Storm shut out Marshall. The 2-0 score does not reflect the fact that the Storm out shot the Tigers 52-10.
The starting line for the Storm were the five seniors, Dani Staples, Abby Knutson, Sara Beyer, Katia Vantries, and Emily Rajewsky. Devon Ratliff-Crain, the manager of the team, is also a senior.
The Storm got on the board midway through the first period with an unassisted goal off the stick of Sara Rajewsky.
The Storm controlled the puck the majority of the game. Vantries, Beyer and Moriah Hovde controlled the puck, keeping the Marshall Tigers out of the Storm zone.
The defensive line of Staples and Monica Lindblad, along with Brooke Anderson, played stellar on the blue line. All three defensive players took shots on the net to pressure Marshall goalie Schneeckloth, but all were denied.
Brooke Falk was guarding the Storm net and made one save in the first period, while Marshall's Schneeckloth stopped 19.
In the second period, the Storm continued peppering the goalie. Both teams had one penalty in the second, but neither team was able to score. Dani Schultz, Sam Falk, and Sara Rajewsky were getting off shots, but were unable to penetrate the net.
The Storm recorded three saves and Marshall had 14 saves in the second period.
In the third period, Schultz rushed the net and got her rebound, but still could not score. Sam Falk got the second rebound of Schultz's shot and scored at 2:41 of the third period.
The Storm had six saves in the third period and Marshall stoppled 19.
Schultz scored four goals and dished out an assist to lead the Storm offense to a 7-1 win over Worthington Saturday at the Benson Civic Center.
In less than 10 seconds, Sara Rejewsky got the scoring started with an assist from Emily Rajewsky.
With only 1:32 off the clock, Sam Falk scored on assists from Schultz and Mahoney.
Schultz increased the Storm lead to 4-0 with two goals before the end of the first period. The first was off a Sam Falk assist and the second was assisted by Mahoney and Sam Falk.
The Storm added two goals in the second period. Mahoney scored off a Sam Falk assist, then Schultz scored short handed, again with an assist from Sam Falk.
The Storm's final point came just 15 seconds into the final period, when Schultz scored her fourth goal of the game off assists from Sam Falk and Morgan DeHann.
After stopping only two shots in the game, Brooke Falk's shut out was ruined with only a couple minutes left to play, when Worthington scored on the team's third shot on goal.
The Worthington goalie was kept busy, stopping 51 Storm pucks.
