The Alexandria girls' hockey team scored five unanswered goals and coasted to a 5-1 win over Willmar at the Runestone Community Center last Thursday.

The home Cardinals broke out in the second period to pull away. Kalley Kragenbring, Rachael Finley and Alia Kopischke all scored within a five-minute span to turn a scoreless tie into a 3-0 lead heading into the third.

Alexandria added to that lead in the third. Shelby Iverson scored a power-play goal before Kopischke added her second of the night almost a minute later. Willmar got on the board 11 seconds later but it was too little, too late as Alexandria cruised to its seventh win of the season.

The home Cards took advantage of the opportunities Willmar gave them. They went 2-for-3 on the power play. On the flip side, the Alexandria defense killed all five power plays that Willmar had. Stephanie Drown had a strong game on the back end of that defense with 11 saves.
