Stars win twice to even record

By Michael Jacobson

The River Lakes Stars girls' hockey team won their fourth game of the season last week, beating Sartell 4-1 with three third-period goals at the River Lakes Arena in Richmond.

Sophomore forward Allie Stalboerger scored a hat trick for the Stars, who won their second game in the Central Lakes Conference this season and their fourth game overall.

Stalboerger scored in the first period, but Sartell tied the score a minute later. The score remained tied at 1-1 until the third period when eighth grader Kenzie Novak scored just 30 seconds into the period to give the Stars a 2-1 lead.

Senior goalie Trish Wendlandt stopped 16 of the 17 shots she faced to earn the victory in goal for the Stars.
