Luverne girls’ hockey skates past Tigers for 5-1 victory

December 22, 2012
Marshall Independent

A short-handed goal by Miranda Fischer gave the Marshall girls' hockey team a 1-0 lead over Luverne early in the second period, but the Cardinals responded with five unanswered goals later in the period to earn a 5-1 win Friday night in Luverne.

The win moves Luverne to 8-1 overall and 6-0 in Southwest Conference action.

Friday was the second time this season the Tigers (3-8 overall, 2-2 SWC) had played each other. Luverne won the first meeting 6-3 on Dec. 4.

Luverne put pressure on Marshall's defense throughout the game and had a 54-18 edge in shots on goal by the final horn, including a 21-9 edge in the second period where all six of the game's goals were scored.

Fischer's shorthanded goal came 2 minutes, 8 seconds into the second period. The lead lasted for just three minutes, as Luverne's Monique Aanenson scored to tie the game. Two minutes later, Luverne's Mariah Aukes poked in a second goal for the Cardinals, and just one minute after that Madisyn Dingmann gave Luverne a 3-1 lead.

Dingmann and Aanenson each scored two goals in the period for Luverne.
