Gridlink Atom Queens Open St. Luke’s Icebreaker

DULUTH, MN — The Gridlink Atom Queens started the St Luke’s Icebreaker with a game against Minnetonka. Both teams managed only a single goal in regulation and would need overtime to choose a winner. Unfortunately for the Queens, it’d be Minnetonka coming out on top with the OT winner. 

In their second game against Mahtomedi, the Queens hoped for a better outcome and it did open up how they’d want as Paetyn Stansell played the roll of playmaker on two goals, first setting up Olivia Vinet early in the period and then to Ava Hrubeniuk late in the period as the Queens took a 2-0 lead into the second. Shayla Stokaluk extended the lead to three, Mahtomedi would get one back but only one, as the Queens took this one 3-1. 

Sunday, the Gridlink Atom Queens will take on Woodbury at 8:15am in the Silver Consolation Championship Semifinal.

Atom and Bantam Queens at Elks Santa Claus Showdown

THUNDER BAY, ON — At this weekend’s Elks Santa Claus Showdown, the Gridlink Atom Queens took on stiff competition in the Atom AA division getting shutout 6-0 by the KC Sabres Atom AA on Friday afternoon but having a more competitive contest that evening against the Fort Frances Canadians but ultimately losing 4-2. Saturday morning, the Northern Selects defeated the Atom Queens 5-1. The Queens will have a re-match against Fort Frances on Sunday in a Consolation game. 

Meanwhile, the Bantam A Queens are in the Peewee AA division. Grace Fitzpatrick scored the lone goal (assisted by Alexis Prepp) in a 3-1 loss to the Peewee AA Neebing Hawks Friday morning and came up just short of the comeback against Current River as Amande Valente (Julia Moro and Kaitlin Whatley assists) and Prepp’s (Paige Fucile and Amanda Valente assists) goals weren’t enough in the 3-2 loss. Saturday though, the Bantam A would earn their first win as Paige Fucile opened the scoring on a setup feed from Emily Leveque and Prepp continued getting on the scoresheet scoring the eventual game winner (assists to Tessa Maki and Grace Fitzpatrick) in a 2-1 win. 

The Bantam A Queens will also have a re-match in a Consolation Game, taking on the Current River Comets Saturday afternoon.

Gridlink Atom Queens Earn Edina Gold

EDINA, MN — The Gridlink Atom A Queens are coming home with some ‘delicious’ championship gold from the Cake Eater Classic in Edina, Minnesota in a thrilling final game. 

The Queens went 2-0-1 in the round-robin and narrowly edged out host team Edina in a tertiary tie-breaker (least goals allowed) to earn their birth in the Championship game against Osseo-Maple Grove (OMG). 

Queens goalie Norah Traer played the role of game-stealer, holding OMG to a single goal through regulation while being outshot 17-6, which came off a 5-on-3 powerplay. After a giveaway in the offensive zone, Morgan Barenz tied the game in the second period for the Queens with a top corner snipe after a  play setup by Shayla Stokaluk. The third period evened out as the shots were three a side but the score remained 1-1. Traer needed to make an amazing glove save on a breakaway in the dying seconds of the game.

After a 4-on-4 overtime didn’t solve anything, the game went to a 3-player shootout. After a scoreless first round, Morgan Barenz once again sniped glove-side on the OMG goalie to put her side up 1-0. The second OMG shooter hit the crossbar on her chance, leading to Vienna Minnella opting for the deke, sliding the puck past the goalie and sealing the deal for the Queens.
