Breck junior Carly Beniek scored the first goal of the game in a fashion that was a common theme for her team.

“I got a rebound,” Beniek said. “And we shot and got a rebound, which I think a lot of our goals came from rebounds, which helped us.

First report

Breck girls’ hockey is back at the state tournament for the first time since the Mustangs won the Class 1A title in 2012.

Junior Carly Beniek scored the first goal for Breck in the first period. Olivia Mobley scored two goals in a four-goal second period for the Mustangs. She now has 29 tallies for the season.
