For two periods, Wayzata goalie Stephanie Garvis had Class 2A, No. 1 Edina baffled and in danger of its first loss of the season. Things turned for the Trojans in the third period when Edina erupted for three goals in a 3-0 victory on Jan. 7, but that does little to detract from Garvis’ effort.
The sophomore goalie stopped all 23 shots she faced through the first two periods against the uber-talented Hornets. Heading into the third period, it looked like two streaks might come to an end in the same game: Edina’s undefeated start to the season and Wayzata’s four-game losing streak.
Edina finally solved Garvis in the third period on Sophie Slattery’s goal at 3 minutes, 20 seconds. Grace Bowlby added two goals in the ensuing minutes and Edina, under first-year coach Sami Reber, improved to 14-0-1.
Edina senior Anna Goldstein made 17 saves to earn the shutout, her second in a row.
Blake slips past Breck
Even with their star players halfway across the world, the girls’ hockey rivalry between Class 1A, No. 1 Blake and No. 2 Breck still thrives. The two teams met Tuesday without big-name players Grace Zumwinkle (Breck) and Madeline Wethington (Blake), both of whom were playing for Team USA in the Under-18 World Championships in the Czech Republic.
Blake won 4-2, getting a goal in the final minute of the second period by sophomore defenseman Grace Vojta to break a 2-2 tie. Lucy Burton scored her second goal of the game at 14:28 of the third period to seal the victory.
