This article submitted by Jenny Habben on 1/17/01.

The River Lakes Stars girls' hockey team hosted St. Cloud Apollo on Thursday.

Despite the 9-1 loss, the Stars were happy with the improvement they saw in their skills.

The Stars skated with the Icebreakers throughout most of the first period and only gave up one goal.

The Icebreakers outshot the Stars 9-2 in the first period.

Early in the second period, the Stars' Emily Moschkau had a great shot to tie the score at 1-1.

Coach Tom Petroski said, "The team played real well. We started to do some aggressive skating and puck control. The girls are really starting to improve in their individual skills."

After tying the score, the Stars started to neglect their defensive coverage, which allowed St. Cloud to score four times in the rest of the period, making the score 5-1.

The Stars again only had two shots on net and the Icebreakers had eight.

The Stars started the third period by using great defense to kill a penalty and kept the Icebreakers from scoring.

Still, St. Cloud increased their lead in the third period by scoring four more times. The Stars were outshot in the third period 12-2.

Abby Jacobs scored four goals and had an assist, and Christine Jernberg had a hat trick and two assists for St. Cloud.

Crystal Songetay and Trisha Wendlandt combined to record 29 saves for River Lakes in goal.
