At Eveleth, Anneka Lundgren lit the lamp twice and added one assist, but it wasn’t enough as the Golden Bears came up just short in a 4-3 loss to Minnehaha Academy.

The United notched two goals within 21 seconds late in the first period to take a 2-0 lead after one. Minnehaha then made it 3-0 in the second before Eveleth-Gilbert started to warm up.

Lundgren put the Bears on the board with a goal at the 6:37 mark with assists by Sophia Flatley and Katie Scherf. Flatley cut the deficit to 3-2 as she dented the net with just five seconds left in the period with assists by Kyle Baranzelli and Lundgren.

Minnehaha scored what would be the game-winner late in the third to go up 4-2.
