All the scoring during Monday’s game between Albert Lea and Winona took place in a matter of two minutes.

The Tigers and Winhawks each scored a goal in the first period, then played to a stalemate the rest of the game, including the overtime period, to end in a 1-1 tie.

Eighth-grader Lucy Sherman scored the first goal of the game for the Tigers, beating Winhawks goalie Cheyanne Markwardt 10:18 into the period.

Winona answered nearly two minutes later when Sydnee Thompson snuck the puck past Albert Lea goalie Maddie Schneider.
