Kayla Mills made four assists while scoring once. Mackenzie Perna and Emily Antony added two goals each, and Becca Leshovsky and Jordan McLaughlin one each.


Blaine sent the game into OT with a goal with 1:30 left.


ERZ was one player short in both OT’s due to three yellow cards in the game.

ERZ will host Coon Rapids on Wednesday.
