Girls cruise by three more opponents, run winning streak to 11
Chisago Lakes 21, Sartell 2
It was easy pickings for the Chisago Lakes offense when they traveled to Sauk Rapids Rice High School on Tuesday, May 16 to take on the Storm’n Sabres co-op.
The girls scored early and often, running up an 8-0 lead before halftime, and cruising with 13 more goals after the break and only allowing Sartell two of their own.
There were stars all over the field for this one, with Aly Vogelsang potting three goals to go with three assists. Kamryn Peterson had four goals on the night, Naomi Eaton netted three goals and an assist, Skylar Wells had three goals, and Kaianna Senne had a goal and three assists.
Lauren Schmidt, Camryn Hinsch, Sydney Kerkow, Rowan Lyons, Kaley Paehlke and Olivia Rambosek all got on the board in the free-for-all for Chisago Lakes.
Laura Carlson played a clean first half in net and Alaina Skaudis made an appearance in the second half, getting her feet wet on the varsity level.
Chisago Lakes 10, Mounds View 8
The girls did have their first tight game in a while, taking on a much bigger school in Mounds View at the Mustangs’ home field.
The score was knotted 5-5 at halftime, with Katelyn Anderson and Peterson scoring twice for the ‘Cats and Wells chipping in a goal.
In the second half, the ‘Cats matched their output with five more goals, while the defense, aided by some incredible Carlson saves, held the Mustangs to just three goals.
Anderson and Peterson both completed hat tricks for the ‘Cats, and Wells added another as well. Eaton and Schmidt scored the goals for Chisago Lakes as they held on 10-8.
The difference in the game was in net, though. Carlson faced 21 shots and made 13 saves on the night. Mounds View’s goalie, on the other hand, faced only 13 shots all night, but made only three saves, allowing the 10 Wildcats goals.
Chisago Lakes 22, Rocori 0
The Wildcats quickly overwhelmed Rocori on Friday, May 19, blitzing the Spartans for 11 goals in the first half, and 11 in the second half for a shutout victory.
Vogelsang, Anderson, Schmidt, Wells, Lyons, Peterson and Madelyn Barten had multi-goal games for CL while Senne, Rambosek, Paehlke, Makenna Olson and Allie Johnson all scored as well.
Carlson and Skaudis split the halves again for the combined shutout.
The ‘Cats are three wins away from an undefeated season. They traveled to Tartan and Forest Lake earlier this week and will finish the regular season at Big Lake on Thursday, May 25.
CL is battling for the top spot in sections with Champlin Park, who is 12-1 on the season and has played a bit tougher schedule than the ‘Cats, but with three more wins, it may be hard to ignore their resume.
