MOORHEAD, Minn. — The 2022 Lamoureux Hockey Cup brought plenty of close games between teams from both the Midwest and Canada, but one game in particular had spectators at the edge of their seats.

The 12U Fargo Grinders and the True North Warriors played three periods of hockey and couldn't determine a winner, so they went into a five-minute, three-on-three overtime. Neither team could find the back of the net, so the game went directly to a shootout.

The True North Warriors would score on their first try with a bar down snipe from Celia Allmendinger.

Goalie Addi Andel made a stop on Elise Knapp, and then Jenna Kurtz would get a stop of her own on Lauren Ness.

The Grinders would tie things up at one a piece in the second round of the shootout, with a goal from Kyndal Scheley.


Kurtz would make another stop for the Grinders against Molly Hockett. Then Sidney Elliot would score the game-winning goal for Fargo with "her signature" triple-deke that she learned from the Mighty Ducks.

To watch each of the shootout goals, including Elliot's game-winner and post-game comments from her, watch the full video below.

Head coach Cailyn Olesen talks about the team's season in the competitive Lake Conference that includes teams like Edina, Minnetonka and Wayzata, coaching at a co-op program and what next year might look like for the squad.
