The first weekend in March brought the hockey season to an end for three of the Ice Dawg teams. The 19U girls, the High School boys and the PeeWees all competed in their final state tournaments March 2-4.

19U

The 19U girls traveled to Grand Forks, N. D., and played their first game against the Crosby Comets on March 2. Both teams were hungry for the win and with the game tied 3-3 at the end of regulation play, the contest extended into overtime. The Lady Ice Dawgs fought hard, but were unable to prevail over the Comets and the game ended with Crosby on top 4-3.

The following day, Glasgow faced Langdon in what would be another close game and another 3-4 loss for the Lady Ice Dawgs.

On the final day of the tournament, Glasgow matched up against the team from Hazen/Beulah and secured a 3-1 win against their opponent.

Bailee Holstein and Kennedy Schmidt led the team in scoring for the weekend with three goals each. Madison Knodel contributed two and Amy Ruggles scored the final goal on Sunday for the Lady Ice Dawgs. Kassie Moore had a great tournament with a notable 104 saves in the three games. In addition, Schmidt was named to the 2017-2018 NDAHA All-State team as a forward, repeating the honor she received from MAHA last weekend.
