Freshman Lianna Hess recovers the puck against Hutchinson Nov. 11. Hopkins Park defeated the Tigers 8-4 in their home opener.

Hopkins-Park Girls Hockey went against Hutchinson Nov. 11 and won with a score of 8-4. 

According to the coach Ryan St. Martin, the team played well at the match.

“I thought today’s game went really well,” St. Martin said. “We were mostly looking for contributions up and down the lines we had there tonight.” 

Freshman Lianna Hess said the game was solid on the defensive. However, she said she had some room for improvement in taking more risks.

“I think I did well protecting our zone and making good passes,” Hess said. “I could’ve taken a bit more body and pinched a bit more in their zone.”

Freshman Ella Koethe said there are spots where the team needs improvement.

“We need to work on protecting the puck in the other team’s zone and pinching in the other team zone,” Koethe said.

According to St. Martin, there is still plenty of defensive development that needs to be done over the season.

“We could have been a little bit stronger in our defensive zone, but that will improve as the season progresses,” St. Martin said. 

Koethe said she will try to be better, be more aggressive and be more in sync with her team in contending with the opposing team.

“I’m just going to do a better job in the other team’s zone and connect more passes in the neutral zone,” Koethe said. “I’m going to work on our plays, power plays and everything.”

According to St. Martin, the team as a whole will continue to work to stay focused and in the moment for future games.

“For the next game we will be continuing to work to sharpen our focus and stay on-board for the whole game,” Martin said.

Girls’ hockey is set to play at 7:00 pm Nov. 14 at the Minnetonka Ice Arena against Pine City.

Greetings all, my name is Serena and this will be my third year working on this publication. I am one of the condemned copy editors working on the Echo this year. In my free time, I partake in listening to some of my revered music. From the works of the late Dimitri Shostakovich all the way to the new and looming artist Chris Christodoulou. When I’m not doing that I am probably sifting through the petrichor while promenading through Saint Louis Park.

Hey guys!! I’m Rachel, I’m a senior, and this is my third year on Echo. In my free time, I like playing tennis, listening to music and hanging out with friends and family. This year I’m looking forward to getting to know more people and running a (very profitable) freezeria with Abby Mei$ler in the pub! My goal for this year is to co-star with Abby to make the most viral video the world has ever seen. Please help us achieve this ;)
