19U splits OT games

By Jody Michael
A day after a 2-1 overtime victory against Hazen-Beulah, Crosby’s 19U girls’ hockey team was on the other end of such a result Sunday at home against Bottineau.
The Stars scored a game-tying power-play goal with 4:31 remaining in the third period, and the winner 2:36 into overtime.
Makenzie Olson had an unassisted breakaway goal in the second period to give the Comets a 1-0 lead. MaKenzie Knudson made 30 saves.
“We got the lead, but we took way too many penalties,” head coach Keith Olson said. “We can’t kill off 11 penalties and expect to win a 1-0 game. It takes too much energy.”
The Comets were the ones rallying late Saturday. Addy Eriksmoen scored with 4:39 remaining, and Autumn Ballew scored the OT winner.
“We played very good D,” Keith Olson said. “I felt after the first period they really didn’t get a good scoring opportunity. Their goalie is one of the two best in the league, and she showed; we got a lot of good shots in this game.”
Crosby outshot Mayville-Portland 22-18 on Friday but fell 3-2.
Makenzie Olson and Natasha DeJardine scored for the Comets, who never led in the game. Eriksmoen and Olson assisted DeJardine’s goal.
“They have a short bench and really slowed the game down,” Keith Olson said. “Much of it was played in the neutral zone.”
The lone 19U game this week is at home Saturday at 7 p.m. against Breckenridge-Wahpeton.
