Spuds girls hockey team downs Buffalo in overtime

Moorhead recovered after losing a two-goal lead in the third period of a game the Spuds dominated offensively.

BUFFALO, Minn. — Moorhead girls hockey fans were probably more than a little concerned that a game the Spuds dominated from start to finish might slip away. Ella Holm let them exhale.

Holm scored on assists from Annie Krieg and Elle Lebahn at 1:52 of overtime and the Spuds had a 4-3 win over Buffalo on Saturday at the Buffalo Civic Center.

The Spuds outshot Buffalo 59-15, including 4-0 in OT, and they held a 3-1 lead midway through the third period. In the first, Moorhead's Olivia Dronen scored shorthanded on an assist from Bria Holm, and after Buffalo tied the game in the second, Bria Holm scored on assists from Ella Holm and Ellie Feeney. Krieg scored on assists from Maddie Spaeth and Kellsey Kludt at 10:00 for a 3-1 lead.

But Buffalo's Raegan Wurm had one assist on a goal at 13:02 to close the gap, then Wurm scored on the power play at 16:43 to force OT.
