Northern Lakes eliminated a 3-0 deficit, but Red Wing scored the final three goals for a 7-4 victory over the Lightning in the Girls Hockey St. Paul Winter Classic on Saturday at North Dale Rec Center.

Emily Hart scored the only goal of the first period for the Wingers, and Kendal Swanson scored twice in the second before Northern Lakes' Caitlyn Gutzman and Chloe Deutsch made it 3-2 before the second intermission.

Alyssa Koslowski tied the game early in the third, but Nicole Oberding gave Red Wing the lead right back a couple minutes later.
