  • Despite totaling more goals than any other senior girls' hockey player in Minnesota and recording 58 points in 21 games this season, Brianna Breiland was not among the ten semifinalists for Let's Play Hockey's Ms. Hockey Award.
     
    The Wisconsin-River Falls recruit has 12 goals and three assists in her last five games. She has 209 career points (139 goals, 70 assists) and is 11 goals away from Marlee Wheelhouse's school record of 150 career goals.
     
    Crookston's Section 8A rival Warroad had two semifinalists named, Kayla Gardner and Lisa Marvin, both North Dakota recruits. Warroad goalie Dayton Hilgert is also one of ten semifinalists for the Let's Play Hockey Senior Goalie of the Year Award.
     
    In fact, all ten semifinalists are Division I recruits.
     
    In addition to on-ice talent, criteria for the Ms. Hockey Award include academics, community and extracurricular activities, citizenship and coachability.
     
    Breiland and the Pirates are in action today in East Grand Forks for a pivotal Section 8A matchup with the Green Wave. The opening faceoff is set for 5 p.m. The regular season wraps up Saturday in Crookston against Northern Lakes, which is a coop between Pequot Lakes, Crosby-Ironton and Pine River-Backus.
