Armstrong-Cooper Girls Hockey Falls to Bemidji
The Armstrong-Cooper girls hockey team lost 4-3 to Bemidji in the opening round of the Armstrong-Cooper Holiday Classic tournament.
Bemidji had a 3-2 lead after two periods before Claire Riestenberg scored on a rush just ten seconds into the third period to tie the game 3-3.
The Lumberjacks converted on a powerplay with just over four minutes remaining in regulation as Elizabeth Oster knocked a loose puck in from close range.
That proved to be the winning goal for Bemidji.
Riestenberg had two goals and an assist for Armstrong-Cooper, with Cara Cook adding a goal and two assists.
Bemidji now faces defending tournament champion Fergus Falls in the semifinals Friday evening.
Armstrong-Cooper plays Park-Cottage Grove in the consolation semifinals.
