The Long Prairie-Grey Eagle/Wadena-Deer Creek Blue Devils erupted for four goals in the second period Saturday to beat Redwood Valley 5-3 and end a 14-game losing streak.


After a slow start in the opening period, the Blue Devils took charge of the puck and over a 12-minute stretch out-shot the Cardinals 9-1 to take a 4-1 lead.

Brooke Umland, Katelyn Barthel, Zara Einerwiold and Kylee Damm hit paydirt in the second period. Einerwiold's goal was her first in varsity play.

Halley Maas added an insurance goal in the third period for the Blue Devils.

Katelyn Peters recorded two assists in the victory.

Sarah Holm recorded 16 saves in the win. Sierra Wagner kicked out 28 shots for Redwood Valley.

George Behl's club had not won a game since Dec. 20 when they edged Redwood Valley 5-4.
