Bemidji HS girls hockey: Sauer, Hunt lead rout of Detroit Lakes
DETROIT LAKES - The Bemidji High School girls hockey team routed Detroit Lakes 14-1 Thursday night.
The Jacks led 6-0 before the Lakers got on the board in the second period.
Shelby Sauer four goals and two assists to lead the Jacks.
Senior defenseman Jessica Hunt recorded her first high school hat trick in the game by scoring twice in the first period and adding another at 10:25 of the second period.
Also a highlight was junior defenseman Megan Phelps' first career goal at 5:30 of the third period.
"We were glad to see Megan Phelps get her first goal and it was a nice shot from the point into the upper corner of the net," Bemidji head coach Matt Menne said.
Janie Johnson had two goals for the Jacks.
Scoring one goal were Allie Lapp, Brita Johnson, Becca Gregg, Janie Johnson, Chaniel Nelson, Karleigh Wolkerstorfer.
Emily Denzer finished with seven saves in net to record the win for Bemidji.
Detroit Lakes rotated between the goalie trio of Vernoica Roy, Amanda Moore and Shayna Dugger. They combined for 26 saves on 40 shots.
"We're not a team that scores that much; on occasion we can score five or six goals," Menne said. "I thought our kids did a nice job of passing around the puck tonight. We had three or four rebound goals and if they would have been a little bit stronger up front we may have had around seven goals."
The Jacks return to action for Hockey Day in Bemidji on Saturday against Alexandria at Nymore Arena. The game time was moved back noon to accommodate the day's schedule.
