Detroit Lakes 3 Moorhead 4
A third-period rally by the visiting Detroit Lakes girls’ hockey team fell a bit short, as Moorhead escaped the Lakers 4-3 Thursday.
The Lakers (0-3-1) tied the game on a Hailey Sonstegard goal, with the assist going to Hannah Rhodes, 14:59 into the third period to knot the game 3-3.
But the Spuds’ Tori Davis’ tally minutes later ultimately gave Moorhead its first win of the season, 4-3.
The Lakers maintained with Moorhead the entire way, even holding a 1-0 lead after the first period when Rhodes found the nylon 10:02 into the game, with the assist by Sonstegard.
But Moorhead (1-2-0) took a 2-1 advantage on scores by Morgan Christ and Davis, while Kara Werth put the Spuds up 3-1 7:39 into the third period.
But the Lakers’ Samantha Benson ignited the rally with the assist by Savanna Nolan, followed by Sonstegard’s game-tying goal.
Monique Aanenson had three assists for Moorhead, while Veronica Badurek had a strong game with 40 saves.
Moorhead goalie Jocelyn Nelson finished with 15 saves.
The Lakers will play in Park Rapids (2-3-0) Tuesday, starting at 7:30 p.m.
