Sun Prairie starts fast, defeats Rock County
Rock County fell behind, 5-1, in the first period and fell to Sun Prairie, 8-2, in a girls hockey game Thursday night.
Jamie Henderson had a hat trick for the visiting Cardinals.
“Sun Prairie proved why they are one of the best teams in our conference,” said Fury coach Darrel Moore. “They beat us to pucks. They won the battles along the boards.”
The Fury’s Katie Maegli tied the game at 1-1 with a goal off an assist from Robin Robles at the 8:45 mark of the first period. Sun Prairie then scored the next five goals.
“We played better as the game went on, but we have to stop digging ourselves such big holes at the beginning of games,” Moore said.
