Farmington (2-1) showed no ill effects from Friday night's one goal loss to Lakeville South in a 15-2 road romp over Hastings Monday night.

Ten different Tigers scored and three others added assists in the lopsided affair that saw the visitors roar to a 10-2 at halftime lead.

"It was a chilly night, but the girls worked hard on the field to stay warm," Tiger coach Dan Pickens said. "It was nice to get the win and work on some things that we know we have to, but nobody
likes games like these.

"It really shows how far we have come in five years of the program. It wasn’t long ago that we were on the other end of these lopsided games and we had to work hard to keep the sidelines positive. Now we can use them as learning experiences and work on getting better each game."

Shelby Klotz scored a hat trick and added an assist to lead the winners. Rachael Welzin, Becky Genzler and Kaitln Lacroix each added two goals and Jill Tollefson, Lindsay Benson, Christine Steffes, Ashley Hessler, Delaney Johnson and Kaeli Halverson had one apiece in the balanced attack.

Ashley Steffes dished out three assists and Nikki Colvard and Brooke Raske each had one.

The Tigers outshot the Raiders by a commanding 31-5 count with winning goalkeeper Maddie Kohlbeck finishing the night with three saves.

Thursday the Tigers continue the non-conference portion of their schedule with a road contest at Section 1AA rival Rochester Century.
