The Spartans girls’ hockey team faced off against the Hudson Raiders Dec. 8 at the Superior Ice Arena, losing 4-3 in OT.

The first period was very back and forth, with Hudson taking an early lead off of a goal from senior Hana Hellmer, with assists from senior Sydney Hendricks and junior Rose Giblin 3:39 into the game. Less than two minutes of game time later, Superior sophomore Arika Trentor tied the game off of an assist from sophomore Jillian Reuille.

Hudson freshman Leah Parker and Superior sophomore Brooklyn Burger then exchanged unassisted goals at 9:25 and 9:45, and the score remained tied until the end of the first period.

The second period started off with a 5:54 goal from Hudson freshman Sophia Donna, and Superior answered back with a 6:34 goal and assist from sophomore Lucy Drougas and junior Destiny Holmes.

The rest of the second period was plagued with injuries for Superior. Drougas was called for a body check, and shortly after senior Paige Lach received a penalty for roughing, setting up a five on three powerplay for Hudson. The Raiders were not able to capitalize, and the score remained 3-3. Later in the second period, Trentor and Holmes were both called for tripping penalties, which set up another unsuccessful five on three for Hudson.

The third period went scoreless, which sent the game to OT deadlocked at 3-3.

Overtime ended 4:51 into the period, with Hendricks assisting on sophomore Nikki Olund’s game-winning goal, and Hudson walked away victoriously with a 4-3 OT win.

Superior was outshot by Hudson 30-19 in the loss. Superior sophomore goaltender Katrina Casper saved 26 shots, allowing 4 goals, and Hudson junior Alayna Kushiner ended with 16 saves and 3 goals allowed.

Superior falls to 0-6 on the season, and hosts Duluth Marshall on Dec. 10.
