On the road against Marshall on Saturday was a much better game for the Stars. It was a much more violent game than the rest of the games the Stars have played this year. There wasn't much scoring, but it was quite a hockey game to see.
The Stars' only goal was scored by Scott Fritz, unassisted, when the Stars were shorthanded.
The final score was 2-1, in favor of Marshall, but there was also a disputed call where one of the Stars' goals was called back.
It was a different kind of game than the Stars normally play, and they stepped up to the challenge with ease, taking hits in stride, and giving them back. "We've said it before: this is the fastest team we've had in the three years we've had high school hockey. This is the first year we've played them and they haven't been able to skate away from us," said coach Mooney and assistant coach Joel Baumgarten.
Adam Hartfiel had a great game with 28 saves in the net against Marshall.
The Stars are looking forward to the next five games because they are against very beatable teams for the Stars. They played archrival Sartell last night in Richmond, and will play at Morris tomorrow night.
