GRAND RAPIDS -- The Bemidji High School girls hockey team played a rare Wednesday game this week, traveling to Grand Rapids/Greenway and dropping a 7-1 decision in Grand Rapids.

Chloe Hasbargen scored for the Lumberjacks (4-16-2) in the third period, a shorthanded goal off assists from Madyson Nistler and Bella Webb. But that was only after the Lightning (16-8) scored the first five goals of the contest.

Mercury Bischoff scored the first two goals -- one in the first period and one in the second -- for Grand Rapids/Greenway. Justine Carsrud and Kalle Reed then took their turns to score for a 4-0 game by the second intermission.

Carsrud added another in the third to make it 5-0, and after the Hasbargen strike, Reed tallied another for a 6-1 game. Molly Pierce produced the final score for the Lightning. Bischoff finished the game with two goals and three assists, including helpers on the team’s final two goals.

Payton Weidemann was 45-for-52 on save opportunities, good for a .865 save percentage for BHS. Makenzie Cole was 14-for-15 between the pipes for Grand Rapids/Greenway.
