Coming off its first loss of the season, the Red Wing girls hockey team recovered nicely with a 6-1 Missota Conference victory against Farmington Tuesday in Farmington.
Nicole Schammel got the Wingers going Tuesday, scoring Red Wing’s first goal on passes from Paige and Reagan Haley. Later in the period, Paige Haley popped in a goal off an assist from Taylor Heise.
Special teams got into the act in the second period when Kayla Oberding put the Wingers up 3-0 with a power-play goal. Red Wing then went up 4-0 on a goal from Reagan Haley. Emily Stegora and Schammel each had assists on both second-period goals.
The Tigers’ Halea Wright popped in Farmington’s first goal in the third period, ending any hope of a shutout for the Wingers.
But the scoring wasn’t over for Red Wing, as Schammel added two more goals, finishing the night with five points (3 goals, 2 assists). Leading the state with 56 points (29 goals, 27 assists), Schammel has five hat tricks in 13 games this season.
At 12-1 overall, the Wingers face one of their toughest tests of the season on Saturday, traveling to Breck, the defending Class 1A state champions. Ranked fifth in Class 1A, the Mustangs (4-7-1) defeated Red Wing 8-4 in last season’s state semifinals before defeating South St. Paul 3-2 in the state championship game.
