WILLMAR - The Willmar girls hockey team is only one game into its season but Madison Garberding has already left her mark.

Garberding netted a power play hat trick in the Cardinals' 4-1 season-opening win against Hutchinson Tuesday night at the Willmar Civic Center.

The Tigers struck first after a goalless first period with an unassisted goal by Alex Hantge but that lead didn't last long. Not even five minutes later, Garberding scored the team's first goal of the season with a pair of helpers from Mya Monson and Bailey Olson. Ava Swart took a pass from Hannah Kobienia 2:35 later to take the lead.

That lead was more than enough for Willmar netminder Savana Knutson, who stopped 26 of the 27 shots she faced on the night. Her counterpart, Ellie Lenarz, allowed two more power play goals to Garberding before the night was out to finish with 23 saves on 27 shots.

Willmar will have a week off until they play hosts to Fergus Falls at 7:15 Nov. 28.
