Both the Stars' goalie Shari Vogt and the Willmar goalie kept the match scoreless through overtime. Willmar outshot the Stars 28-18, but Vogt made every save in net.
Both teams kept the other from scoring in all three periods to have a scoreless tie. The Stars defense proved to be strong to the final minute. Again Vogt proved to have a strong ability to stop all sorts of shots.
In the first period against Morris, Mary Beth Johannes scored on the power play to pull the Stars ahead, 1-0.
The second period went just as well, as the Stars scored another goal by Emily Mosckau with two great assists by Marya Losinski and Anne Bohlman. The Morris Tigers continued to get called for penalties, which helped the Stars.
Within four minutes of the third and final period, the Tigers scored their lone goal to make it a score of 2-1, but that didn't last long as Kari Turkowski scored for the Stars to end the scoring at 3-1.
The Stars' offense proved to be a great asset to the team. The defense protected the goal by blocking some great shots. The Stars goalie, Shari Vogt, also made some magnificent saves to lower her goals against average to 1.20 per game, which leads the conference.
The Stars have a short break until Thursday when they play St. Cloud Tech at home in Richmond. Then they travel to Princeton on Saturday. "These are two teams that we need to beat to get a good seed in the playoffs," said coach Tom Petrowski.
