Girls hockey: Rebels calm Storm
Moose Lake Area is next scheduled to play Princeton Thursday, Nov. 14
Moose Lake Area seventh grader Sandra Ribich scored two goals and recorded two assists in the Rebels' 4-1 win over North Shore on Tuesday, Nov. 12, in Silver Bay.
Ribich scored in each of the first two periods and led MLA to a 4-0 lead, with eighth grader Gracie Hartl and senior Jamie Benzie scoring the other Rebel goals.
Goalie Jo Wekseth made 28 saves, but North Shore senior Sydney Haugan put a puck past her late in the third period to break up the shut out.
MLA (1-1) has eight players on the team in seventh or eighth grades who played on the 12-U state championship team last winter. The Rebels have a lot of incoming talent and added depth this season, but the team will have some growing pains as younger players adjust to the varsity level.
The Rebels are next scheduled to play at Princeton at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14.
