Warroad teammates call Genevieve Hendrickson “Geno,” which pairs phonetically with “gino,” hockey slang for a goal.

The nickname fit well Wednesday as Hendrickson’s hat trick fueled the undefeated Warriors’ 4-0 quarterfinal victory against St. Paul United.

Goals from Hannah Corneliusen and Hendrickson a little more than two minutes apart in the first period produced an early lead.

No. 1-ranked Warroad (27-0-1) didn’t relent. Hendrickson doubled her team’s lead after two periods with a pair of power-play goals. The second one came with just nine seconds left in the period.
