WESTON– Things were looking pretty good for the Black River Falls Tigers early in their tilt against the Central Wisconsin Storm on Monday afternoon.  The Tigers jumped out to a 1-0 lead just 2:51 into the contest and held the Storm scoreless throughout the first period.

But the slow start by the home team wasn’t exactly a harbinger of things to come as the Storm surged for three goals in the second period, followed by two more in the third period to clinch a 5-1 victory.

With the win, the Storm’s record improves to 15-2-2.

Challis Prohaska kicked off the scoring and broke the ice– so to speak– for the Storm at 9:22 in the second period.

Prohaska’s goal was assisted by Sami Federici.

Federici then notched another assist when Maddux Federici found the back of the net to push the Storm’s advantage to 2-1.

Maddux Federici finished the game with two goals and an assist.

Also scoring goals were McKenna Kaczor and Lauren Ellis, respectively.  Kaczor added two assists in addition to her goal.

The Tigers’ lone goal came from Savannah Holcomb.

Defensively, the Storm allowed just 12 shots all game and Sydney Weiland was solid in goal, recording 11 saves. Josie Mathison saved 34 for Black River Falls.
