Muskie girls bomb Bears

The Muskie girls’ hockey team sent a few more Bears into hibernation last night.
Shelby Tymkin had a pair of goals while nine different Muskies lit the lamp as Fort High crushed Lake of the Woods 10-1 in an exhibition game in Baudette.

The locals held a massive 62-10 advantage on the shot clock and scored five times in the first period to put the Bears away early.
Tymkin, who led the team with four points, did all her damage in the opening frame, with Rachel Jean, Kaily Greengrass, and Hailey Clendenning joining her in the goal parade.
After Leah Shaw got the Bears on the board early in the second period, Fort High responded with four more goals before the intermission thanks to Sarah Milling, Amber Jourdain, Amy Penner, and Katie Sinclair.
Claire Sandelovich netted the lone goal of the third against besieged Bears’ goalie Makenzie Davidson, who made 52 saves to keep the score from getting even more out of hand.
Calie Clendenning, meanwhile, had an easy nine-save evening to earn the win.
The Muskies face the International Falls Broncos tonight at 7:15 p.m. at the Ice For Kids Arena in their traditional cross-border exhibition battle.
The team also will hold its annual “Teddy Bear Toss,” with fans asked to bring along a stuffed toy to throw on the ice after the first Muskie goal.
The toys then will be collected and distributed by the local Salvation Army this holiday season.
