Superior took on Moose Lake in girls’ hockey Tuesday night at the Superior Ice Arena. The Spartans fell behind in the first period but came back with a vengeance in the second.

A 12:35 goal in the second period by senior Rose Ion, assisted from senior Paige Lach, kicked off the Spartans scoring streak. This brought the Spartans a boost of excitement, which resulted in a goal just over a minute later by sophomore Arika Trentor and assisted by sophomore Lucy Drougas.

With 42 seconds to go in the second period, Superior scored once again bringing the game to a 3-3 tie. Drougas chipped in the score off an assist from sophomore Brooklyn Burger.

A 12:32 goal from Moose Lake freshman Raechel Painovich, assisted by junior Michaela Belanger and senior Abby Painovich, put the Rebels ahead 4-3.

With 49 seconds left in regulation, Ion scored once more with an assist from Burger, tying the game, and regulation ended in a 4-4 deadlock.

There were multiple shots on goal in OT, but no one was able to punch in a score, ending the game in a 4-4 tie.

“I am mad that we did not win, but I am glad we did not lose. One thing we need to work on would be our passing,” senior Paige Lach said. “One thing I am happy for is that I got assists. There is nothing more important than those, not even scoring is more important.”

Superior moved to 2-14-2 (0-4 Lake Superior Conference), and they next play at Eau Claire Jan. 19.
