Local Roundup: Card boys hockey falls to the Falls

BRAINERD—An early lead became a losing deficit as the Willmar boys hockey team fell 5-3 to the host school at the Little Falls Tournament Thursday night.

Ty Christensen and Jonathan Broman gave the Cardinals a 2-0 lead with goals in the first period but Little Falls responded with three goals in the second period to take the lead. Willmar wasn't kept down for long, though, as Nate Spencer knotted things up just 11 seconds after the go-ahead goal in the second period.

The third period was all Little Falls as Landon Johnson scored five minutes, 55 seconds into the third period and Jake Kapphahn scored the insurance goal, his second of the night, near the end of the game.

Willmar came out on the short end but the Cardinals certainly made the most of their opportunities, scoring three goals on 10 shots. Little Falls, on the other hand, scored five goals on 31 shots against Willmar goaltender Caden Johnson.

Willmar 1, RAC 0

Madison Garberding scored the game's only goal in the second period and goalie Savana Knutson turned away all 23 shots she faced as Willmar defeated Robbinsdale Armstrong/Cooper on Thursday in the Armstrong/Cooper Tournament.

Garberding scored at 16:17 of the second on assists from Hannah Kobienia and Serena Monson.

Savana played really well, the defense was solid and Garb snuck one in," said Willmar head coach Eric Setrum said. "It was a good win, to beat a Class AA school from a good conference."

The Cardinals will advance to take on Princeton.

"They are a tough team but if the right team shows up and the goaltending is strong, which we know it will be, we have a shot," Setrum said. "They have a couple of very strong players so if we can shut them down then I like our chances."
