The Eagles stretched their unbeaten streak to 3 games with a convincing 4-1 victory over St. Louis Park. T-G took control of the game right from the drop of the puck and put immediate pressure on Orioles goaltender Hannah Broderson. A nice passing play between Shannon McFarlane and Maddy Javorina set up Molly Adam at the 10:10 mark to put the Eagles up 1-0. About 3 minutes later, Maddy Javorina set up Molly Adam again who notched her 4th goal of the season and her 2nd of the period. St. Louis Park had a golden opportunity later in the period to get on the scoreboard as they fired 3 consecutive point blank shots on Eagles goaltender Brittany Fussy. Brittany made 2 great toe saves and kicked the 3rd one away to keep the Orioles scoreless. T-G took a 2-0 lead into the first intermission.
The Eagles continued to dominate play in the 2nd period. T-G blueliner Hannah Johnson was having a strong game and was bottling up the St. Louis Park attack by continually preventing the Orioles from getting the puck out of their zone. T-G was whistled for a tripping penalty just a couple of minutes into the period, and even being one player down, they continued to attack. Laura Minkoff found Kristen Dellich who popped out from behind the Oriole net and fired a backhand shot to score her team leading 10th goal of the season at the 14:37 mark. The Eagles increased their lead to 4-0 when Kelsey Lyngdal weaved her way up the ice and finished a classic give and go with Erin Cullen on the powerplay. For Kelsey, it was her first goal of the season.
T-G enjoyed roughly a 2-1 shooting advantage through the first 2 periods. The big question entering the final period was whether the Eagles could keep the Orioles off the scoreboard for their goaltender. With less than 6 1/2 minutes remaining, T-G lost the draw in their end and a bang bang play from Leah Schrank to Sophia Noreen ended Brittany's shutout bid. Shots for the game were 43-32 in favor of the Eagles.
T-G will next return to Parade Ice Garden on Saturday at 3:00pm to take on Spring Lake Park in a key North Suburban conference showdown.
