WILLMAR -- Kayla Hendrickson's second goal of the game in the first minute of overtime handed Sartell/Sauk Rapids a 4-3 victory over Willmar in Central Lakes Conference girls hockey on Thursday.

Hendrickson, who had a four-goal game on Tuesday, emerged alone from center ice with the puck. She went in to beat Cardinal goalie Allison Johnson for the game-winner 56 seconds into the extra period.

Willmar had come back from a 2-0 deficit on goals by Chelsey Wierschem and Ali Sing in the mid-stanza for a 2-2 tie after two.

After Hendrickson put Sartell/Sauk Rapids back in front, Taylor Sandberg anticipated a Sartell/-Sauk Rapids drop pass, stole the puck and on a solo break-in beat Haley Althaus with a move to the forehand.

"We had a chance in overtime, too," said Willmar coach Rick Dahle. "We won the second period but we didn't always capitalize on our opportunities.
