Girls Hockey: Sartell/SR skates past Willmar, 3-1

SARTELL -- A 1-0 Willmar lead evaporated in the game's last four minutes and the Cardinals fell to Sartell/Sauk Rapids 3-1 on Tuesday in a Central Lakes Conference girls hockey game.

Jennie Mattison's powerplay goal in the second period was the only goal for Willmar (2-4, 8-7).

But Kendra Rasmussen broke up Baylie Young's shutout bid with a goal at 13:15. Fifteen seconds later Brittney Becker gave Sartell/SR the lead and then an open net goal in the last 12 seconds iced it.

"Game after game we hit the panic button for about a minute," said Willmar coach Chad Akerson of the late collapse. "I thought we outplayed them. We outplayed our last four opponents but we're 1-3 in those games."

Mattison's second-period goal came on a shot from the point after some nice passing, including the helper by Kayti Cole.

Shots were even at 26 apiece.

Willmar (2-4, 8-7) is off until Tuesday when they play at the St. Cloud Icebreakers.
