Northern Edge holds off Medford, wins opener 4-3
space
The Northern Edge girls hockey team was a winner in its season debut Monday, downing the Medford Raiders at the Multi-Purpose Building in Antigo, 4-3.

An early 1-0 deficit in the game was quickly erased, with a pair of late first period goals, and two more in the second, building a 4-1 lead it would not relinquish.

Medford's opening goal came just under 11 minutes in, courtesy of Emily Schafer, with assists from Ryley Koski and Kristen Brandner.

The Antigo-Rhinelander co-op settled in however and tied the game just 29 seconds later, courtesy of an unassisted goal from junior forward Lauren Kefalinos.

The Edge went in front for the first time only one minute and 12 seconds later, with another unassisted score. This time it was junior Madi Losch getting behind the Medford defense for the goal and a 2-1 advantage.

The 2-1 score would hold up until just over 10 minutes had expired in the second period, when Kefalinos tallied her second goal of the game, this time assisted by Evelyn LeVeque.

At the 12:15 mark, the Northern Edge went up three, as Emily Kassler scored her first varsity goal, with Kefalinos adding the assist, and the Edge was in command at 4-1.

The assist was part of a three-point night for Kefalinos.

Medford added a late second period score, coming with just under a minute remaining off the stick of Koski, giving the Raiders some-much needed momentum heading into the third.

Edge goaltender Alicia Turunen held strong in the third, turning away 12 Medford shots, only allowing a goal with 2 1/2 minutes remaining. Schafer was credited with the Raiders' final score, her second of the contest.

It was part of an overall solid game for Turunen, whom the Edge hopes will make big strides in her first full season in goal, after moving into the position mid-way through last season.

The Northern Edge held on from there for the season opening, and Great Northern Conference opening victory.

Turunen finished with 27 saves in net, while her counterpart, Medford's Alex Nicks stopped 31. The Edge outshot the Raiders 35-30 for the contest.

The Northern Edge was able to overcome a significant amount of penalties in the contest, with infraction minutes tipped heavily in favor of the Edge, with 12 minutes on six penalties, to a lone two-minute minor for Medford.

The Raiders however, were unable to take advantage of those power play opportunities, ending the night 0-6 on the man advantage.

The Edge will have plenty of time to clean those mistakes up, with its next contest scheduled for Monday, Dec. 3 at another GNC foe in the always tough, Northland Pines Eagles.
