Counting Tuesday's 1-0 Central Lakes Conference loss to Alexandria, Willmar had gone five periods and most of a sixth before Becca Freese broke through with a powerplay goal with 2:13 left in regulation.

That made the score 2-1, but a penalty at the two-minute mark doomed the comeback and the Flying Warriors finished up with an open-net goal.

Freshman Sierra Han-owski had a goal and an assist for Brainerd/LF.

Baylie Young made 36 saves in the Willmar net. The Cardinals put just 15 shots on the enemy goal.

"We came out flat for the second game in a row," said Willmar coach Chad Akerson. "They fore-checked extremely hard and won the races to the puck. We had trouble breaking the puck out and they just kept getting more and more confident."
