Girls Hockey: Willmar stopped in opener


WILLMAR -- Baylie Young had a busy opener in the Willmar net, turning back 45 shots, but the Cardinals succumbed to North Wright County 3-0 in a non-conference girls hockey game on Tuesday.

Young especially had a rugged second period when she stopped 22 of 23 shots.

The RiverHawks' sustained pressure on the Willmar net paid off when senior Kasey Blomberg broke around a Cardinal defender to score from low in the slot at 4:09 in the first.
