Farmington's 2-1 Missota Conference win over Red Wing Thursday, Sept. 15, provided a perfect example of how meaningless statistics can be.
The Tigers outshot the Wingers by an eye-popping 33-3 for the game and at halftime the visitors trailed 1-0 despite recording 18 of the game's first 19 shots.
"To be honest, the girls played great," coach Rob Carpentier said. "We just couldn't finish."
Midway through the second period Miranda Larson tied the game at 1-1 with her varsity goal on an assist from Alex Frost, her first as a varsity player.
With just three minutes left in regulation Kelly Kornmann gave the Tigers the victory with her first career goal. Hannah Miller assisted on the game-winner.
Ashley Becker worked the nets for the Tigers and recorded her first-ever varsity win.
The Tigers (5-4) won't have much time to dwell on their win as Saturday they travel to Rochester to take on Section 1AA rival Mayo.
"Mayo will be tough," Carpentier said. "That's a very important game for us."
