The Hastings girls hockey team had a tough loss against Mounds View on Friday night, 4-1.
Hastings held a 1-0 lead heading into the second intermission, but from that point on it was all Mounds View. They scored goals at 39 seconds of the third period, 8:42 and 10:55 before adding an empty-netter at 15:53 for the final margin.
The Mustangs won the shots-on-goal battle, too, 30-17.
“Our goaltending and some individuals played hard but overall the team was disappointing considering where we have been so far this year,” coach Jeff Corkish said. “Effort and attitude are all we ask for and we have not had effort the last two games. We are not good enough to just show up and put on the skates. We have to outwork teams to succeed and the girls are finding that out now. We will be fine but needed this lesson to learn about ourselves.”
Brooke Weber played in goal for Hastings.
“She played very well,” Corkish said. “She has been a positive fixture in the net for us. The team has not been playing well the last two games but Brooke has held us close so we have a chance to come back.”
The lone Hastings goal was scored by Hailey Lundquist. She was assisted by Kit Ruedy.
