WILLMAR -- For the second year in a row, the Hutchinson Tigers knocked the Willmar Cardinals out of the section playoffs.

"They're our nemesis," said Willmar head coach Jason Mayer.

Even though the Cardinals were seeded a rung higher at No. 2, the Tigers distanced themselves from the host team on Saturday night at the Civic Center 5-1 in the girls hockey Section 2A semifinal round.

The Tigers erased Willmar in last year's section final, by the same score.
