The first game against Litchfield/Dassel-Cokato on Tuesday, Jan. 23, went about as well as to be expected. LDC scored four goals in the first period, two in the second, and one in the third to blank the Stars 7-0.
The talented LDC team outshot the Stars 55-5.
The real downfall of the game had to be the penalties. The Stars had a total of 42 minutes in penalties, including two 10-minute majors plus game misconducts.
The Stars host Benson-Morris tomorrow night in Paynesville at the Koronis Civic Arena. They host Sartell on Saturday at the River Lakes Arena in Richmond.
