Fergus Falls hosted Northern Lakes in a girls’ hockey contest on Thursday at the Community Arena and the two teams wound up in a 3-3 overtime tie.
“Hats off to the Northern Lakes goalie,” said Fergus Falls Head Coach Tim Lill. “We put 45 shots on net, 20 of them Grade A opportunities. We just couldn’t bury the puck. Maddie Hulter scored a couple of beauties and Piper Andrews ripped a poor-angled laser over the glove also. We need to clean up the puck slappin’ and control play moving forward.”
Hulter got the scoring started at 8:42 of the first period with an assist from Jadyn Bye. A power play goal by Rose Aldridge tied the game at 10:50 of the opening period. The goal was assisted by Jada Brodzinski and Megan Muller. Northern Lakes took a 2-1 lead with 1:38 left in the period when Aldridge scored from Ava Mertz and Riley Fogarty.
An unassisted goal by Fogarty 24 seconds into the second period gave the visitors a 3-1 lead. Andrews notched a power play goal midway through the second period with Hulter and Marilyn Karsnia assisting.
Hulter tied the game at 5:53 of the final period with assists from Andrews and Gabby Brimhall.
Fergus Falls (12-3-2) will host Detroit Lakes in a makeup game on Saturday at 6:00pm.
