Game Recap

On Saturday afternoon in a Class 2 Section 3 Semi-Final at VMCC in Inver Grove Heights, Eastview Girls Varsity Hockey played East Ridge in front of a big crowd. The opening minutes of the 1st Period was very fast-paced and play was back and forth. East Ridge got on the scoreboard 1st and took a 1 to 0 lead at 6:58. The Lightning Girls were putting some heavy pressure on the ER Goalie at the end of the 1st, but couldn’t get a goal (1 to 0 ER after 1). The pesky Raptors came out strong in the 2nd and during an East Ridge Power Play, Emma Tschida came up with some big saves. This shifted momentum and EV scored a goal at 7:44 in the 2nd to tie up the score. Cassidy Leininger set up this power play goal by making a pass from the point and Natalie took the puck from behind the net and hammered in a goal. The Raptors scored about 4 minutes later and they took this 2 to 1 lead into the 2nd Intermission. The intensity picked up in the 3rd and play was back and forth. Shortly after a faceoff at 6:34 in the 3rd, Mary Keating tied up the score by driving to the net and burying a rebound (Allie Tuccitto and Sally Nelson assists). At the end of regulation it was a 2 to 2 game. Each team had a few opportunities in the 1st Overtime but there was no scoring. During the 2nd OT, EV had high intensity and was putting heavy pressure on East Ridge. During this time, the Raptors Goalie denied EV on some high quality scoring opportunities. However, she couldn’t deny Natalie Snodgrass at 15:18 in the 2nd OT, as she scored a short-handed highlight-reel backhanded top-shelf goal! Katie Quaintance had the assist. The crowd went wild and now Eastview will play in the Section Final on Wednesday at VMCC in Inver Grove Heights at 7 pm. EV outshot ER 53 to 27. Netminder Emma Tschida picked up her 2nd win in Section play and made 25 saves. Please come out and cheer for the Lightning on Wednesday at VMCC. Go Lightning! #RoadNotTaken
