Since 15 of the 20 teams featured in this week’s Staff Rankings did not play since new rankings were revealed on the last episode of the Her Ice Podcast, this week’s rankings feature capsules on each ranked team that played since last Wednesday.

No. 5-2A Maple Grove 6, Rogers 1

The Crimson allowed its first goal of the season last week but bandaged the wound with six goals of its own in a 6-1 win over Northwest Suburban Conference and Section 5AA foe Rogers.

Impressively, the Crimson saw five players mark the scoresheet in the win. Cate Fischer scored twice, while Hadley Bakker, Lauren Lubow, Bella Shipley, and Claire Daniels tallied one goal each.

Syndey Bailey scored the lone goal for Rogers in the loss, and Claire Kinneborg stopped 36 shots.

No. 3-1A Orono 2, No. 4-1A Proctor/Hermantown 1
No. 3-1A Orono 4, Cloquet/Esko/Carlton 1

The Spartans took a tour of northeastern Minnesota over the last week, picking up wins over No. 4-1A Proctor/Hermantown and Cloquet/Esko/Carlton.

Maddy Kimbrel and Alexa Niccum scored for Orono in the win over the Mirage, with Vivienne Anderson continuing her standout high school start with 29 saves on 30 shots.

Against the Lumberjacks, Kali Schmidt played the hero, scoring twice for the Spartans in a 4-1 win. Zoe Lopez and Dylan Collins each scored once for the Spartans, with Brayley Merrier the goal-scorer for the C/E/C.

No. 7-1A Mound Westonka/Southwest Christian 10, Luverne 0

MWSWC took full advantage of a traveling Luverne squad on Saturday, scoring five times in the first period and four more times in the third for a 10-0 win over the Cardinals.

Giselle Harder led the way with two goals and five points for the Whitehawks, followed by Camryn Hargreaves, Greer Hardacre, and Elizabeth Callahan, who registered four points apiece.

No. 8-1A Dodge County 4, Shakopee 0

A three-goal second period powered Dodge County to a 4-0 win over Shakopee. Zoe Heimer scored the game’s first two goals for the Wildcats, and Mollie Koch scored the second pair late in the second period.

Surprisingly, neither team could connect on a power play, as the Wildcats and Sabres combined to go 0-9 with the player advantage.
