Saturday, the Peewee Queens took on the Duluth Ice Breakers in their first of two matchups for the day. Duluth drew first blood in the second period but the Beth Gagnon would tie it up soon after after being setup by Keira Stokaluk and then early in the third, Makenzee Kostiuk put the Queens ahead 2-1 which was the final score. In their evening game, Forest Lake put up the first three goals, taking a 3-0 lead but the Queens would respond with three of their own as Annie Mallon potted two while Gagnon also scored to make it a 3-3 tie. Unfortunately in the third, a pair of powerplay goals 15 seconds apart from Forest Lake put the game out of reach. 5-3 loss.
