East Ridge girls hockey: Hastings ends Raptors season in section opener
The East Ridge girls hockey team lost its 3AAA Section playoff game on Wednesday at Hastings, ending the Raptors' season. The Raptors were outshot 24-17 and lost the game 3-0. Fourth-seeded Hastings (13-9-5) scored in the first period and twice in the second to end any chances of fifth-seeded East Ridge advancing to the next round.
East Ridge senior goalie Katie Ahmann stopped 21 of Hastings' 24 shots in a game that saw only three penalties total. East Ridge finished the year 10-14-2 overall and 8-8-2 in the Suburban East Conference.
The youthful Raptors graduate just two seniors off this year's roster -- Ahmann and senior defensive standout Katelyn Bergloff.
