WILLMAR -- The Willmar boys hockey team had enough chances, but couldn't do as much as Sauk Rapids did with them, losing to the Storm, 7-2, in Central Lakes Conference action Tuesday.

The Cardinals outshot Sauk Rapids 36-23 and held the Storm to just three shots on goal in the second period and six in the third.

But it was the four-goal first period that put Willmar in the hole.

Four different players scored for Sauk Rapids and three of the goals came in the last 5:30 of the frame.

The Cardinals' Jay Bredberg started the game's scoring, less than a minute into the match.

Willmar wouldn't score again until 9:27 of the second period, when Andrew Kleven netted an even-strength goal to make the score 5-2.

Landon Baker assisted on both goals for the Cardinals. Goalie Ben Leitch recorded 16 saves, including 10 in the first period, which was his busiest.
