Cardinals drop to 2-1 in CLC
Alexandria still believes in team chances in Section 8AAA
Alex earns four all-conference awards
The Alexandria girls hockey team came up a goal short in its second game back from the holiday break against River Lakes in Richmond Thursday. Head coach Blair Hovel said the River Lakes’ forecheck kept the Cardinals bottled up in their own zone through the first period. They were able to make some adjustments toward the second half of the game to get back into it. “We worked hard and played well, the shots were 32-25, them,” Hovel said. “It was a tough, physical game. River Lakes is always kind of that way.
The Alexandria girls hockey team scored three special teams goals Saturday in a 3-0 victory over Rogers on the road. Two of the Cardinals’ goals came on the power play and one was tallied shorthanded. Head coach Blair Hovel said the Cardinals also found some unexpected physical play from the Royals. “It was just a fun, hard battle for the girls,” Hovel said. “They worked hard. We didn’t expect it to be a physical game, but it was.” McKenzie Revering got the scoring started for the Cardinals in the first period on the power play.
