That seems to be a theme for Moorhead girls’ hockey, as referenced by senior captain Bria Holm and coach Ryan Kraft.
It’s certainly playing out on the ice for the Spuds offensively this season, with the latest piece of evidence being an 8-1 victory over Wayzata on Friday night at the Plymouth Ice Center.
The Spuds, ranked No. 12 in the Class 2A Let’s Play Hockey coaches’ poll, received goal scoring from seven different players and had 11 players register a point. The No. 17-2A Trojans have lost four straight games, all to teams ranked in the top-20 of Class 2A.
Moorhead took a 1-0 lead in the middle of the first period, sparking a five-goal explosion before the first 17 minutes were up on the way to an 8-1 victory over Wayzata Friday night at Plymouth Ice Center. The Spuds scored a pair of shorthanded goals within a 12-second span to go up 3-0.
Senior captain Bria Holm bookended the scoring with a pair of goals and an assist as she surpassed 100 career points.
In goal, Spuds sophomore Taylor Kressin made 15 saves while Wayzata sophomore Malin Erickson stopped 11 shots in the first period, and junior Ella Podiak made nine saves in the final two periods.
The teams last met in last year’s Walser Invitational around the holidays. Wayzata shut out the Spuds 3-0 in that game with a trio of third-period goals, two coming in the final two minutes of regulation.
Moorhead (4-1), ranked No. 12 in Class 2A by the Let’s Play Hockey coaches’ poll, entered the game averaging 4.50 goals per game. The Spuds have now outscored opponents 26-8 this season.
The Trojans (2-4), ranked No. 17-2A, have lost four straight games, all to teams ranked in the top 20 of Class 2A.
