SATURDAY BOYS HOCKEY: Slow start sinks Eagles

Two Rivers 3-2-4 = 9
Windom Area 0-0-2 = 2

The Windom Area boys hockey team dug a deep hole and couldn’t recover Saturday, falling 9-2 to Two Rivers at the Windom Arena.

The Warriors scored three goals in the opening period, then added a pair of goals in the second to take a 5-0 lead.

The Eagles tried to mount a rally early in the third. Karson LaCanne scored 45 seconds into the period, with Brady Espenson adding a goal 45 seconds later. The Eagles nearly pulled to within 5-3, but an open shot hit the goalpost.

That proved to be the break Two Rivers needed to get momentum back, as the Warriors closed the game with four consecutive goals.

Two Rivers outshot the Eagles 28-24 for the game. Goalie Grant Dronen finished with 19 saves.
