Girls Hockey: First line carries Tigers to 6-3 win over Chaska/Chanhassen

Krystal Baumann had her second four-goal game of the season, leading the Tigers to a come-from-behind 6-3 Missota Conference win over Chaska/Chanhassen Tuesday night, Nov. 23, at the Chaska Community Center.
The first line of Baumann, Hannah Alexander and Chloe Batta accounted for almost all of the Farmington scoring, piling up six goals and 7 assists. The Tiger trio has accounted for 30 of the team's 32 points this season.
The Tigers started slowly with Chaska/Chanhassen drawing first blood with a goal just 1:34 after the opening face-off.
Baumann, Alexander and Batta each scored in the second period to give the visitors some breathing room and then Baumann took over in the final frame, scoring a pure hat trick in the first 11 minutes.
Chaska/Chanhassen closed the scoring with a pair of goals in the final four minutes of play.
Baumann finished with four goals and an assist to run her four-game total to 12 points (10 goals, 2 assists). Alexander and Batta each had a goal and three assists. Betsy Anderson added an assist for the winners.
Tiger goalie Jessica Erchul had another busy night between the pipes, stopping 30 of 33 shots. Chaska/Chanhassen outshot Farmington 34-33.
Farmington (2-2 overall; 1-0 in the Missota Conference) jumps back into play Saturday, Nov. 27, with a non-conference game against section rival Lakeville North at Ames Arena in Lakeville.
