Willmar moves into semifinals


WILLMAR -- If you keep hammering long enough, the nail will eventually bust through.

That's the way Willmar handled Marshall's red-hot goalie Mitch Campion in the first round of the Section 3A hockey tournament at the Civic Center.

The Cardinals peppered Campion with shot after shot until Trent Fader tapped in a rebound at 11:47 of the second period for a 1-0 lead. Fader's goal was the 35th shot against Campion, who finished with 51 saves.
