Fergus Falls scored two goals in each period on Tuesday night as they posted a 6-2 win over St. Cloud in their home opener at the Community Arena.  Piper Andrews scored twice and assisted on a pair of goals to lead the Otters and Maddie Hulter had two goals and one assist as Fergus Falls improved their season record to 3-1.

St. Cloud got on the board first with an unassisted power play goal from Ally Breidenbach four minutes into the game.  Andrews then setup Tyra Skjeret for the equalizer at 8:51 and the Otters took the lead on Hulter’s first goal at 13:45 with assists from Hope Goepferd and Hannah Johnson.

A power play goal by Gabby Brimhall at 8:05 of the second period gave the Otters a 3-1 lead.  Andrews earned the assist on the goal.  Andrews then scored a power play goal of her own at 11:15 with an assist from Hulter.  St. Cloud cut the lead to 4-2 when Allison Hayward tallied an unassisted goal at 12:53.

Fergus Falls scored the final two goals in the third period as Andrews recorded their third power play conversion of the night with an assist from Marilyn Karsnia at 10:40 and Hulter notched her second of the game at 14:50 from Karsnia and Brimhall.

Ana Jyrkas came up with 19 saves on 21 St. Cloud shots and the Otters scored on 6 of their 18 shots on goal.

“All-around great effort tonight,” commented Head Coach Tim Lill of the Otters.  “Skye Norgren had her best all-around high school career game.  We outworked a team that only played two lines.”
