Chisago Lakes, ranked No. 9 in the Class 1A coaches' poll, started this season on a five-game winning streak, a complete reverse of last season’s 0-6 start. It followed that streak with a loss and a pair of ties.

What’s changed? Playing a full game, according to coach Dave Burgen.

“We’re not putting together three complete periods right now,” Burgen said. “We’re playing usually two really strong periods.”

The Wildcats took a 1-0 lead just 26 seconds into Friday’s game that ended in a 3-3 tie with nonconference foe and host Osseo/Park Center at Dick Vraa Ice Arena. It was the second 3-3 tie in a row for Chisago Lakes (5-1-2) in the middle of a stretch of five consecutive road games.

First report

Chisago Lakes junior forward Jenna Lawry tallied an assist and a pair of goals, including the tying goal that eventually sent the game to overtime. Despite chances and power plays for the Wildcats and host Osseo/Park Center, the two squads skated to a 3-3 tie in nonconference play Friday night at Dick Vraa Ice Arena. 

It was the second 3-3 tie in a row for Chisago Lakes, ranked No. 9 in the Class 1A state coaches' poll, in the middle of a stretch of five consecutive road games. 

For the Stars of Osseo/Park Center (1-4-1, 1-4), they overcame a 2-0 deficit — including going down 1-0 just 26 seconds into the game — to take a 3-2 lead with 6:44 left in regulation. Their penalty kill remains perfect on the season. 

Chisago Lakes’ (5-1-2, 1-0) senior goaltender Anna Egge-Kittleson (2-1-1) made 27 saves.  With the regular goaltender out sick for the Stars, eighth-grade goaltender Anya Rokusek got the call for her first varsity game, stopping 23 shots.
