Lakeville South senior forward Claire Enright tallied her team-leading 33rd, 34th and 35th goals of the season on Saturday. Those three goals were all the Cougars needed as they won 3-0 against Rosemount at Hasse Arena.
Enright’s first goal of the game came late in the first period on the power play as she fired a shot past Rosemount goaltender Laney Burton.
In the second period, Enright did it again to make it 2-0 for Lakeville South (17-1, 12-0). This one came as she was falling down in the crease. Her third came with less than a second left in the third period on an empty net to complete the hat trick.
The Cougars, ranked No. 4 in Class 2A in the latest coaches’ association poll, held firm defensively despite some heavy pressure from the No.6-2A Irish. Rosemount senior forward Whitney Tuttle nearly had a goal in the second period, but it was eventually waived off by the referees.
Outside of Tuttle’s near score, Lakeville South goaltender Claire Bronson picked up the shutout by stopping 35 shots. Burton finished with 18 saves.
