Detroit Lakes fell to 0-3 on the season completing a three-game stretch to open the year against top 20 state-ranked girls hockey teams after a 5-0 road loss at Thief River Falls Friday, Nov. 16.
“Overall, a very good effort by the girls,” Laker head coach Scott Piepkorn said. “They worked hard for three periods. We just need to learn to score now.”
The Lakes held an 8-7 advantage in shots in the first period but trailed 1-0 on an even strength goal by Bella Amiot two minutes into the game.
Thief River Falls took command in the second period allowing only one Laker shot at the net and scoring on three of their 10 shots to lead 4-0. Khloe Lund had a pair of unassisted goals in the frame, one at even strength and one on the power play. Hanna Magnusson scored in between Lund’s tallies.
Lund picked up an assist on Tai Petrescue’s third period goal with Kia McGlynn getting the secondary assist.
The Lakers were 0-5 on the power play; the Prowlers converted once in five opportunities.
Shots on goal were 31-19. Gabby Steele earned the victory stopping all 19 Laker shots. Leah Honer had 26 saves.
DL looks for their first win of the season at home Tuesday, Nov. 20 against Northern Lakes (2-1) in the Mid-State Conference opener.
