The Cardinals (11-5-3) scored two first-period goals from Kaci Trosvig and Ella Johnston. Alexandria opened up the game in the second period with two goals from Hanley Block and one from Makenna Aure.
EGF’s Kylie Stauss scored late in the second period to cut Alexandria’s lead to 5-1. Stauss scored the lone goal for the Green Wave (7-10) on Friday night.
Jordan O’Kane tuned in a great performance in goal for the Cardinals. She stopped 18 shots to get her sixth win of the season.
