SARTELL — The Otter girls hockey team traveled to face Sartell/Sauk Rapids Tuesday only to come up a little short in a very well played game 4-2.
Sartell Sauk Rapids was able to get a lead just under halfway into the first period, and then quickly add another to go up 2-0, which would hold through the end of the period.
Fergus Falls answered four minutes and twenty-seven seconds into the second period with a goal from Hannah Baker with the assist going to Megan Odland. Sartell/Sauk Rapids was able to put a third goal on the board a short time later, but Fergus Falls was once again to come back with an answer as Stephanie Kolstad tallied an unassisted goal to bring the game to a 3-2 mark as the teams head to the locker room for the end of the second.
Fergus Falls could get nothing going in the third and were soon down by two again as Sartell/Sauk Rapids scored their forth and final goal of the game that brought the matchup to a 4-2 score, which would stand until the final buzzer.
“We were happy with the way the girls competed the first two periods,” said Coach Koalska after the game. “In the third we got a little tired. It is the third game in a row the girls have played the way they can, competing and playing with passion. They are starting to buy into what they can do individually to make the team successful.”
After this loss it brings the Otters to a 6-6 record on the season, which they hope to improve in their next game against Crookston at 7:15 p.m. on Friday.
