GIRLS HOCKEY: Eagles can’t find net in loss

Prairie Centre 0-0-1 = 1
Windom Area 0-0-0 = 0

The Windom Area girls hockey team had a hand in a bit of state hockey history Saturday, but it wasn’t the kind of history the Eagles hoped to be a part of, as the Eagles lost 1-0 to Prairie Centre at the Windom Arena.

The Eagles sent a barrage of shots on goal toward Prairie Centre senior goalie Kennedy Lemke, but Lemke stood firm between the pipes, turning aside all 85 Eagle shots on goal.

Lemke’s save total for the game earned her a spot among the state leaders for most saves in a single game, but her 85 saves is believed to be the most saves ever in a victory, and is certainly the record for most saves ever in a shutout victory.

The game stayed scoreless until the third period, when Prairie Centre’s Kyra Swanson knocked a rebound past Eagle goalie Lilly McNea for the game’s only goal.

McNea finished with 15 saves in the loss for the Eagles.
