Two goals in the third period for the Alexandria girls hockey team ended up being the difference in a 3-1 victory on the road against Brainerd on Tuesday.

Kaila DeWanz and Mari Wosepka both tallied third period goals to break a 1-1 tie. Both goals were scored off rebounds near the goal, which was something head coach Blair Hovel said the team has been working on over the past week.
“The third period was where we really worked harder and got those chances to score on opportunities that we’ve been struggling with,” Hovel said.
The Cardinals started the game with a first period goal by Hanah Hansen, assisted by Karina Carlsen and Wosepka.
Micaela Swenson and Alexis Heckert both received one assist on Alexandria’s two third-period goals.
Goaltender Amy Jost made 25 saves on 26 shots to pick up the victory.
The win improved Alexandria to 3-2-1 in the CLC and 7-5-1 overall.
