ST. PAUL — University of Minnesota commit and Ms. Hockey semifinalist Isa Goettl's three-goal performance propelled No. 2 Andover to a huge 9-0 victory over Rosemount on Thursday in the Minnesota Class AA girls quarterfinals at the Xcel Energy Center.

Goettl not only posted three goals (one being shorthanded), she also tacked on two assists and two penalties throughout the 51-minute game.

"I don't really pay attention to my goals. I think we work hard as a team and we are all rewarded by a goal, so I wouldn't say any of mine were better than anybody else's," said Goettl after the game.

Senior Goalie of the Year finalist Courtney Stagman (St. Anselm) of Andover earned a 10-save shutout while Rosemount played both Natalie Kendhammer and Avery Miller in net during the quarterfinal matchup.

Andover also had a four-point performance from Madison Brown (St. Thomas) and Ella Boerger (St. Thomas).


"Our intensity wasn't really there in the first period but I think that we really started to get going in the second and third and got our jitters out," said Boerger.

"We just try to tell everybody to play our game because we know that when we play our game we're a really good team and when we work together we're really good. Just stick to our game and stick to our plan, never let up," added Goettl.

Rosemount also talked about sticking to their game plan and having a team mentality headed into the quarterfinal match.

"Just saying, keep going, don't look at the score, look at what you're doing next out at every shift, just saying that we can do this," said Irish forward Anna Shandorf. "I cannot be prouder, it's a great feeling to be here."

"They work so well together, they know where each other are out on the ice, they're sneaking back door, they're always moving the puck wherever they go. They're a very skilled team and they all work together. There's no individual," said sophomore Sophie Stramel on what makes Andover so good.

The reigning Class AA state champions advance to the semifinal round on Friday to take on No. 3 Edina at 6 p.m. at Xcel Energy Center.
