Hill-Murray starts fast, finishes faster in quarterfinal win

Posted: Updated:

Hill-Murray book ended their 6-2 win over Eagan with solid play. It's what took place in the middle that had Bill Schafhauser a little perplexed.

"It was an interesting dynamic that was going on with our team," said Schafhauser. "I thought we played pretty well in the first, played with a lot of energy and a lot of speed, no idea what happened in the second. Obviously to their credit, they made some adjustments and we didn't react real well."

The Pioneers took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission, the watched as Eagan tied the game short handed. Thanks to a Sarah Bobrowski goal late in the period, the momentum swung back the way of the Pioneers.

Pioneers forward Britteny Anderson scored a muddy goal early in the third period to put her team up two. With a scrum in front of Wildcat goalie Sophia Lundquist, Anderson picked her spot and fired.

"My heart was racing, I was just hoping I wouldn't miss the net," said Anderson. "It ended up going in so I was happy."

The Pioneers have a rematch with Eden Prairie in the second round of the tournament. The two teams met in the first game of the season and skated to a 2-2 tie.

"The similarities are ironic a little bit," said Schafhauser. "They have a really young team, we have a really young team. I think they are extremely fast, I think we're pretty fast. It makes up for a great matchup I think."

Hill-Murray and Eden Prairie will faceoff tomorrow night at 6PM.
