Blue Devils hand Bears 5-1 hockey loss
The Long Prairie-Grey Eagle/Wadena-Deer Creek Blue Devils made it two in a row Saturday as they skated to a 5-1 victory over Lake of the Woods at Baudette.
Coming off a decisive 8-1 victory over Morris-Benson, the Blue Devils racked up a 3-0 first period lead against the Bears on goals by Katelyn Barthel, Halley Maas and Kyle Damm. Zara Einerwold was credited with an assist on the goal by Maas.
The Blue Devils boosted their lead to 4-0 in the second period as Brooke Umland found the net with help from Einerwold and Maas.
Sam Killian gave the Blue Devils a 5-0 lead at the 8:17 mark of the third period.
Angela Hanson saw her bid for a shutout disappear when Bethany Easthouse pushed one past her at the 12:04 mark of the final period.
Hansson kicked out 11 of 12 shots. Emily Ney was credited with 35 saves.
The Blue Devils have held their last two opponents to under 20 shots.
"To get opportunities to score goals, we have to do a good job of moving the puck and playing together," WDC Head Coach George Behl said, "The chemistry is good."
The Blue Devils will host Fergus Falls in a Nov. 27 game in Wadena. The Blue Devils travel to Litchfield Nov. 30.
