Boys Hockey: Cardinals can't shake off slow start


WILLMAR — The Willmar Cardinal skaters couldn’t overcome a slow start and fell to visiting St. Cloud Apollo 3-1 on Thursday in a Central Lakes Conference game.

The Eagles swarmed the Willmar zone uncorking 25 shots on goalie Levi Goosmann, who didn’t let things get out of hand early. A major for checking from behind in the last minute of the first period led to back-to-back powerplay goals and a 3-0 lead 40 seconds into the second period for the Eagles.
