Four Games, Four Wins for 14U Lady Ice Dawgs
November 22, 2017
The 14U Ice Dawgs had a successful opening weekend in Kalispell Nov. 17-19. They played four games and earned four wins – three of them shut-outs for goalie Elizabeth Nyquist.
The games were held at Woodland Ice Center, an outdoor rink in Kalispell. The rink is almost the perfect setting for hockey games, with tall trees creating a canopy of sorts over the ice that amplifies the sound of skates on the ice and pucks hitting the boards. It is especially magical at night and is a favorite venue for many Ice Dawg families.
The girls faced the Bozeman Ice Dogs in their first contest on Friday night, and defeated their opponent 6-2. It was the only game of the weekend that was not a shut-out for the girls. Brooklyn Schmidt was the first to light up the scoreboard with an unassisted goal in the first period. Klaire Krumwiede tacked on another point with her own unassisted goal before the end of the period.
Glasgow scored the only goal of the second period with Kylie Lagerquist hitting the back of the net with an assist from Krumwiede.
The Lady Ice Dawgs finished the game with a trio of goals in the third period. Lagerquist scored with the assist going to Schmidt, Mayme Collins hit one between the pipes unassisted, and Emma Cook scored the final goal with the assist going to Tatum Provencher.
The Ice Dogs scored just two goals in the game, with one in the first period and one in the third period. Nyquist had 16 saves.
While Bozeman finished the game penalty-free, Glasgow earned two minor infractions.
The second game of the weekend was played on Saturday morning against the Missoula Lady Bruins. Glasgow dominated the ice, scoring 11 goals and Nyquist defended her net perfectly, shutting out their opponent.
Scoring goals in the first period were: Provencher assisted by Schmidt; Shanice Lagerquist assisted by Provencher; K. Lagerquist assisted by Schmidt; Cook assisted by Tori Pehlke; Cook assisted by Provencher; Krumwiede assisted by Schmidt; Krumwiede assisted by K. Lagerquist; Provencher assisted by Krumwiede; Schmidt assisted by K. Lagerquist; Cook assisted by K. Lagerquist; and Krumwiede unassisted.
The Lady Ice Dawgs also recorded several penalties with seven two-minute infractions served in the box while Missoula had just one. Nyquist finished the game with 16 saves.
Later, on Saturday afternoon, the Lady Ice Dawgs faced the Moscow, Idaho Bears. It was another shut-out for Nyquist as she prevented the Lady Bears from scoring. Glasgow, however, found the back of the net seven times. K. Lagerquist began the scoring streak early in the first period with an unassisted goal. Collins scored with the assist going to Pehlke; Provencher assisted by Krumwiede; and Krumwiede assisted by Pehlke. In the second period, Cook added a point to the score when she hit the back of the net unassisted, followed by a goal from Provencher assisted by Schmidt.
The final goal of the game went to Cook in the third period with Pehlke earning the assist. Glasgow kept the penalties to a minimum, with just two infractions recorded against the ladies.
To finish three days of hockey, the Lady Ice Dawgs claimed their fourth win against the hometown Flathead Flames, 2-0. Nyquist stopped eight pucks to get the shut-out. Scoring for Glasgow were K. Lagerquist assisted by Ava Lloyd and Collins, and Provencher with the assist again going to Lloyd. Glasgow saw some time in the penalty box with six total minor infractions.
The final tally for the Lady Ice Dawgs: 26 goals, 2 hat tricks (Cook and Krumwiede), 22 assists and 17 penalties.
