On Tuesday night, the bleachers were filled with fans for United Girls Hockey and Minnehaha Academy alike. Spectators cheered as players came out on the ice, white hockey outfits facing off against red ones.

For most of the game, United was in the lead. Sophomore Lucie Bond made three goals in the first period alone. By the beginning of the last period, the game was 10-0. Minnehaha got three goals in the third period, resulting in a United win of 11-3.

We were able to try out a few new things that we’ve been working on which is important for a team moving forward.”

“It was really nice because a lot of people who don’t get much playing time had more playing time, and some people scored their first goals. It was overall a really good experience,” junior Erin Magnuson said.

Senior Kathleen Bishop agreed.

“It was a really fun game. I think we worked really well together. We had a lot of good offensive scoring chances which is always fun. We were able to try out a few new things that we’ve been working on which is important for a team moving forward. And it was a nice confidence boost, so I think we played well and had fun together,” Bishop said.
