White Hawks Women’s Hockey Wins Two Big Wins On Ice | Sports

The Mound Westonka / SWC White Hawks Women’s College Hockey Team beat two Class AA opponents at home last week to bring their record to 6-1 this season.

On Tuesday, November 23, the Mahtomedi Zephers came to the Thaler. The home team took a 1-0 lead after one and outscored the visitors 22-1. Montana Courneya’s rebound on a Sydney Leonard shot was the only goal.

The second period saw the White Hawks score three more rebounding goals, with Leonard, Gretta Pioske and Gisella Harder each hitting the back of the string. Mahtomedi would get a great individual effort to score a goal and send him to the locker room 4-1 behind.

Georgia Harmer scored her first college goal midway through the third period and Ashlee Johnson scored her second of the season to close the scoring in a 6-2 victory.

On Saturday, the White Hawks hosted Dodge County. They slept during the first period and made it to the locker room tied 0-0. Fourteen seconds into the second period, Greer Hardacre buried a rebound from a Gretta Pioske shot to make it 1-0. Four minutes later, Ellie Schmid suffered a backhand from Leonard. And just a minute later, Leonard scored from a near-impossible-angle shot to increase the lead to 3-0. Ali Butler scored to make it 4-1, then the White Hawks held on as the Wildcats scored two late goals to make it 4-3.

Ashlyn Roth won the goals in both games.

Only one game this week as the MWHS / SWC teams travel to East Ridge on Thursday night. Next week, the White Hawks host East Grand Forks Friday Night, which is also Youth Night.
