BRAINERD -- The Bemidji High School girls hockey team couldn’t capitalize on its growing momentum, as a 7-0 loss at Brainerd/Little Falls snapped a streak of three straight neck-and-neck games.

But the Lumberjacks lost by a touchdown on Tuesday and dropped to 0-8-2 on the year.

Both Peyton Lemieur and Molly Hagelie netted hat tricks for the Flying Warriors (9-5). Lemieur did all her damage as part of Brainerd/Little Falls’ four-goal second period, while Hagelie bagged one in the second and two more in the third.

Bemidji reached a 0-0 tie by the first intermission, but the shot discrepancy finally caught up to the Jacks. The Flying Warriors won the battle of shots on goal by a 58-8 margin.

Payton Weidemann finished with 35 saves on 39 shots in two periods. Ava Myhre relieved Weidemann for the third and stopped 16 of 19 shots.
