WORTHINGTON – Puck control was the name of the game for Fairmont Area as the Cardinals outshot the Worthington Trojans 66-6 during nonconference girls hockey action on Thursday night in Worthington.

Defender Tieryn Arens then blasted a double-assist from Katie Hohensee and Jordyn Junkermeier past the Trojan goalie and into the net for an early 3-0 edge.
Brooke Lemon found the net on a shot off a Lytle assist, before Kelsy Junkermeier extended the lead to 5-0 on a shot off a Jenna Klages-Taylor Nuss assist.
In addition to the five shots that reached the net in the first, Fairmont Area fired another 30 on goal.
The offensive production didn’t stop there as the Cardinals added five more goals in the second.
Jalyssa Wilson found the net on the second of Klages’ two assists, before Rahm connected on an Cori Emler helper for a goal to go up 7-0.
Klages then found the net via an unassisted goal in the second frame for her third point of the night to put Fairmont Area ahead 8-0.
Nuss then distributed an assist to Alyssa Fetters for a goal before Nuss capped the second-period scoring with an unassisted goal late to take a 10-0 lead.
In the third, Brooklyn Healey took a double-assist from Jordyn Junkermeier and Fetters to beat the Trojan netminder for the final goal of the game.
Sadie Sandersfeld, who started between the pipes for the Cardinals, stopped the two shots she faced in the first, while Emily O’Connor stopped the other four Trojan shots on net.
