Junior Marie Omann (3) - shown shooting in the Stars' season opener - scored three goals in two games for River Lakes at the Duluth East tourney over the weekend.
Junior Marie Omann scored a power-play goal for the Stars midway through the second period, cutting Duluth East's lead to 2-1. But the Greyhounds scored another goal with four minutes to play in the period.
Omann scored another power-play goal for the Stars midway through the third period, but the Stars could not get a tying score.
Against Cambridge-Isanti, the Stars built a 2-1 lead, thanks to a first-period goal by Omann and a second-period goal by junior Amber Schulzetenberge. But Cambridge-Isanti scored three straight goals over the last half of the second period to take a 4-2 lead. The Blue Jackets got their last goal in this flurry with 13 seconds to go in the period on the power play.
The Stars got their third goal three minutes into the third period, when sophomore Ellyn Kinzer scored for River Lakes. Trailing 4-3, though, the Stars were unable to notch a tying score. Cambridge-Isanti got an empty-net goal with 40 seconds to play to make the final score 5-3.
