Six different players scored goals and goalie Kaelan Geisser stopped all 19 shots on goal as the Woodbury girls hockey team beat St. Louis Park 6-0 for its first win of the 2012-13 season.
Already leading 2-0 in the non-conference contest, held Friday, Nov. 16, at Bielenberg Sports Complex, Woodbury (1-1) scored four second-period goals to blow the game open.
Woodbury seniors Caroline Joyce and Molly Burke, juniors Sarah Wahlin and Amanda McAlpine and sophomores Kayla Falconer and Ashley Krinke each scored goals in the win. Wahlin and Falconer also each added assists, as did Cassandra Morris, Livia Twohig, Sarah Gustafson and Erin Goodell, while Geisser, a junior, earned the shutout victory with 19 saves.
Woodbury had 22 shots on goal in the win over the Orioles (1-2).
After the win, Woodbury took on Tartan (0-1) on Tuesday, Nov. 20, after the Bulletin went to press. Next, the Royals face off with Roseville (2-0) on the road on Tuesday, Nov. 27, in their first Suburban East Conference game of the year. The Raiders are the defending SEC champions and were ranked fifth in the state in last season’s final poll.
