Hatchet girls run hot streak to six
The Hatchet girls hockey team carried a three-game win streak into last weekend’s first annual Beaver Dam tourney and the girls doubled their fun on the way to the title.
Tomahawk improved to 11-7-1 on the season with wins over Beaver Dam (5-1), Lakeland (4-1) and Baraboo (4-1).
“The girls played as well as they have all year and hopefully peaking at the later stages of the season heading into playoffs in two weeks.,” THS coach Greg Vallier said. “Tomahawk moved the puck well all weekend and played as a team as much or more than they have all year, with the scoring being spread out throughout the whole roster for all 3 games. Tomahawk girls have shown pride and passion for the game and respect for their opposition, and watching this happen over the year for the fans and the coaches is what sports are all about.”
Against Baraboo, THS built a 4-0 lead with goals from Nicole Nerva (UA), Lauren Bembinster (A-Rylie Flohr, Sam Jorgeson), Erika Vallier (Madi Ungerer, Dacoda Shore) and Flohr (A- Vallier).
