Girls hockey: Cardinals hand state-ranked Mankato East/Loyola first loss


MANKATO — Willmar squandered a two-goal lead and had 16 less shots than unbeaten Mankato East/Loyola, but the Cardinals’ persistence paid off Saturday as they toppled the No. 7-ranked team in Class A 5-2.

Shelby Schneider came up huge for the visiting Cardinals as the sophomore forward netted a hat trick by scoring Willmar’s first three goals, two in a span of 10 minutes in the first period and another on an early power play in the third.
