Stars score 21 goals in two-game sweep
Junior defenseman Marie Omann scored four goals for the second straight game as the River Lakes Stars girls' hockey team beat Litchfield/Dassel-Cokato 10-3 on Thursday to complete a two-game sweep for the week.|
Omann's first goal, a power-play score, came midway through the first period and tied the game 1-1. Junior Amber Schulzetenberge scored with four minutes to play in the opening period to give the visiting Stars a 2-1 lead.
Omann scored a natural hat trick in the second period, notching another power-play goal just over a minute into the period and then scoring back-to-back goals less than 30 seconds apart ten minutes later.
Seventh grader Jenn Paul added a fourth goal for the Stars in the second period with 90 seconds to play in the period on the power play. Leading 6-1, the Stars (6-12) scored four more goals in the third period, winning 10-3. In the final period, the Stars got two goals from junior Allie Stalboerger and goals from sophomore Ellyn Kinzer and ninth grader Kenzie Novak.
This week, the Stars played St. Cloud Apollo on Tuesday. The Stars will travel to Willmar on Thursday and next week will host Sartell on Tuesday, Jan. 25, at the River Lakes Arena in Richmond.
