Girls, boys hockey teams come up short

 

“Our first period and half of the second period we were not on our game,” Buffalo Bison head coach Ray Dahlof said. “The (South St. Paul) Packers came out with their feet moving.” 
In the first period, the Bisons’ passes wouldn’t connect. They also needed to stay out of the penalty box. Having three penalties in a row hurt them quite a bit. The Packers capitalized on their oppurtunity and scored on a power play. Toward the end of the first, Buffalo picked it up and sophomore Abby Halluska scored to tie up the game, leaving the ice with a score of 1-1. Shots on goal: Bison- 8 shots, Packers-9 shots.
During the second period, the Bison seemed to lose focus.
