Burns, Pannek, and T. Press shine in 2-0 victory over the Stars

The Red Knights advanced to the Section 6AA semi-finals against Hopkins on Wednesday night at 7:30pm at Parade Ice arena with a tough 2-0 victory over North Metro.  BSM outshot the Stars 54-13, but North Metro goaltender Kayla Kreuter had a stellar game in net to keep the game close.  She surrendered only 1 goal in 8 Red Knight power play opportunities.

BSM got their first goal of the game from Kelly Pannek at 11:37 of the opening period from Jordyn Burns.  It was Pannek's 32nd goal of the season and Burns' 22nd assist of the season.  The Red Knights outshot the Stars 21-5 in the first period, but had to settle for just a 1-0 lead going into the intermission.

The game became more physical in the second period and BSM would make North Metro pay by scoring their second goal of the game on the powerplay.  This time Kelly Pannek assisted on Jordyn Burns' 15th goal of the season to give the Red Knights a little more breathing room.  It turned out to be the last goal scored in the game. Tiana Press recorded her 7th shutout of the season and improved her record to 17-2-1.
