A prodigious school scoring record was broken by Jonna Curtis on Thursday while Elk River/Zimmerman cruised 5-2 over the Moorhead Spuds.
Curtis, fifth-year senior forward, got the first goal of the Centennial Invitational third-place game at 14:07 of the first period, giving her 249 points, and eclipsing the record of 248 held since 2004 by Jessica Pullar.
Curtis added two assists, putting her current total at 251 points on 138 goals (24 this year) and 113 assists. Pullar, top scorer on the Elks’ state championship team in 2004, who played collegiately at Bemidji State, still holds the Elk goals record with 156. She had 92 assists.
The goals kept coming for the Elks (11-2-1) as Jordan McLaughlin and Madison Ellis (power play) scored in the second period, and Abby Kratzke and McLaughlin again (power play, empty net) in the third period.
Kaylee Forster made two assists, and Kayla Mills, Cassey Petrich, and Josie Brown one each.
Tori Davis scored twice for the Spuds (8-5).
The Elks will resume conference play Tuesday hosting Blaine.
