Proctor/Hermantown, which came into the tournament as the No. 3 seed, defeated No. 2 Warroad 3-1 to advance to the Class A championship game.
Warroad (20-2-0) got on the board first when senior forward Abbey Hardwick batted in a rebound from junior forward Maddie Lavergne at 5:24 of the first period. The Warriors’ lead held until 16:59 of the first, when freshman forward Hannah Graves scored after a brief scramble in front of the net.
Graves didn’t wait long to net her second goal. She caught a spot-on pass from senior forward Michaela Phinney at 3:39 of the second period and beat junior goalie Kendra Nordic with a picture-perfect shot from the left circle. Senior forward Alyssa Watkins pushed the Mirage’s lead to 3-1 less than three minutes later, with an assist coming from senior defenseman Kaydee High.
Proctor/Hermantown (20-0-0) will face either Gentry Academy or Chisago Lakes in the title game. The championship is scheduled for Saturday, April 3 at 11 a.m.
