Sports roundup from Friday, November 29


Mound-Westonka 4, Alexandria 0

The Alexandria girls' hockey team lost its second straight game on Friday night in a 4-0 loss to Mound-Westonka that dropped the Cardinals to 4-2 on the season.

The White Hawks scored in every period, including twice in the second to take control of the game. That was plenty of support for Emma Palusny, who earned the shutout in net with 29 saves. Bailey Serum took the loss for Alexandria, stopping 27 of the 31 shots she faced. Hunter Gallus led the White Hawks' offense with three points on two goals and an assist.

The Cardinals will try to bound back this afternoon when they play at Orono with a drop of the puck at 2 p.m.


Breezy Point 7, Alexandria 3

The Alexandria Blizzard couldn't carry over the momentum from a 3-2 win against Granite City on Wednesday night as Breezy Point handed Alexandria a 7-3 loss at the Runestone Community Center on Friday night.

The North Stars scored the first four goals and held on after the Blizzard cut it to a one-goal game after two periods. Breezy Point put the game away with three goals in the final frame. Crosby Steen had a big night for Breezy Point with five points, while Blair Seitz added four.

The Blizzard's scoring came in the second period when Drake Hunter scored back-to-back goals to make it a 4-2 game. Gavin Mindt then made it a 4-3 game with 32 seconds left in the period. Breezy Point didn't allow that to carry over into the third period as Blake Neumann scored 2:02 into the final frame before the North Stars added two more to put the game away.

Alexandria will be back at home tonight when North Iowa comes in for a 7:10 drop of the puck. The Bulls are still undefeated at 18-0.
