After starting the season off with an impressive 12-2-2 record, the Hastings girls hockey team has hit a bit of a rough patch lately.

Hastings is 0-3-1 in its last four games.

On Friday, one of those losses came against Forest Lake. Hastings lost 4-0 in a game where Hastings actually held a shots-on-goal advantage of 30-24.

"That was a tough one," Hastings coach Jeff Corkish said. "We thought our kids worked hard. We just made some errors that led to their goals. I think we played hard. It was just a bunch of bounces. They all went Forest Lake's way.

"We didn't get the bounces, and we didn't get the puck into the net. That's just the way hockey goes sometimes. We got shots on goal and had chances in front of the net. Things just didn't click."

Vs WBL

Hastings and White Bear Lake tied, 4-4, last Tuesday.

It was the first game as a starting goalie for Danielle Meier, who is filling in for Stefanie Wical, who was injured in a game against Mounds View on Jan. 9.

Meier stepped up and made 36 saves as Hastings held off the Bears, ranked No. 9 in the Class 2A rankings.

"It was just unbelievable for a kid to come in and do that," Corkish said. "She played so well."

Hastings actually held a lead late, 4-3, but White Bear tied the game with 14 seconds left.

"That was probably one of the best games we've played all year," Corkish said. "The kids worked extremely hard. We're dedicated every single shift. They just competed all night long."

Vs Stillwater

Hastings lost to Stillwater on Tuesday night, 10-0. The Ponies are the No. 7 ranked team in Class 2A.

Hastings is now 12-5-3 on the season.
