The Girls Varsity Hockey team took on the White Bear Lake Bears on Tuesday, and came away with a 4-1 victory. White Bear Lake scored a shorthanded goal on its first shot of the game, but Amelia Julian put the Bears into hibernation for the rest of the game, stopping the next 26 shots. Natalie Bordson scored her own shorthanded goal half way through the first period to tie the game. Avery Chesek stuffed in a Mikayla Kelley rebound to give the Lightning the lead late in the second period. Bordson found her way onto the score sheet a second time after getting mauled on a breakaway and converting the resulting penalty shot half way through the third period. Kelley added an empty net goal late in the game for the final margin with an assist from Amelia Julian (the goalie’s first point for the season).
The Lightning continue their 3-game road trip on Thursday in Prior Lake. Come on out and see them play, because whether they are facing down ferocious Bears or confronting dangerous Lakers, these girls have proven that they are #NotAfraid.
