The first game is Friday, March 16th, 6:00 PM at the Eden Prairie Community Center (Rink 1).
They face Eagan/IGH in their first game of the State Tournament.
WORDS FROM COACH NICCUM:
"The girls had the toughest path, but managed to get out of Regions. They won the first game on Friday vs. Northeast Metro by a score of 5-1. The game on Saturday was against the #1 team in the state, Andover. They almost pulled out a big upset and they held a 2-1 lead for much of the game but Andover tied it up at the end of the 2nd. The girls outplayed Andover the entire 3rd period but Andover managed to take a 3-2 lead late in the period. With the goalie pulled, only 4 seconds left on the clock and an offensive zone face off, the girls managed to tie it up with 1.6 seconds left. In over time it was all Orono-Westonka, but a VERY lucky bounce off a skate somehow got past our goalie. The girls bounced back Sunday with a 2-0 win over OMG and a dominating 8-0 win over Forest Lake to claim the 3rd seed out of the American Region.
It would be great to get people from both schools out to cheer them on. It might just be the first time both communities come together on a larger scale to cheer for the same youth team!"
