Wildcats roll with two wins at Warroad
The Dodge County Wildcats have been riding a wave of momentum over the past week as they picked up a victory over New Ulm before heading up to Warroad and picking up a two more victories in a holiday tournament.
The week began for Dodge County by hosting New Ulm at Four Seasons Ice Arena on Dec. 22. This game represented another strong test for the Wildcats as the Eagles were ranked 13th in Class A heading into the contest.
After a scoreless first period, Bella Wagner opened up the scoring for the Wildcats with an even strength goal from Magdalyn Wick followed by a power play goal from Katie Robinson and Molly Shelton.
Brittany Denn would cut the lead in half with an unassisted goal toward the end of the second period, but an Ally Gunderson goal coming from Wagner sealed it and Dodge County would pick up the victory 3-1.
The Wildcats looked to take that momentum on the road, but they had to endure a eight-hour bus ride to Warroad. As a result, Dodge County came out a little bit sluggish against the Warriors, falling into an early 2-0 hole.
A persistent style of play allowed the Wildcats to get back into the game and force overtime with a score of 3-3. With the game coming to a close, Hollywood Hermanson would score the game winner and give Dodge County a 4-3 victory.
