Chisago Lakes wins thriller; Gentry, Warroad, Proctor/Hermantown advance

Warroad, a small-school girls’ hockey state tournament fixture, seized control of its first game.

A three-goal first period fueled a 10-0 rout of Rochester Lourdes on Friday at Xcel Energy Center in the first Class 1A quarterfinal.

Played before a sparse crowd, limited by COVID-19 restrictions and undoubtedly travel distance as well, the game lacked atmosphere. But No. 2 seed Warroad (20-1) maintained its intensity.

Genevieve Hendrickson, a Ms. Hockey Award semifinalist, opened the scoring by finishing a give-and-go with Tayla Hendrickson.
