Girls hockey: Cardinals tame Tigers in 2A


WILLMAR — The Willmar girls hockey team’s coaching staff has been stressing to players the importance of scoring first. Getting on the board early takes away a lot of pressure and opens up the offense.

The Cardinals picked a perfect time to put that advice into action.

Willmar scored twice in the first two minutes of the game and rolled Hutchinson out of the Section 2A playoffs with a 5-0 win Thursday at the Cardinal Arena.
