Defending Class A state champion Blake took all it could handle from Red Wing Friday afternoon in the girl's state semifinal game at Xcel Energy Center. Carly Bullock scored the game-winning goal for Blake just 38 seconds into the second overtime period for the 5-4 victory.

Blake had a 4-3 lead after two periods, but Red Wing tied the game with 4:59 remaining when a shot off Blake goaltender bounced off Blake defender Sylvie Wallin and into the goal.

The game wasn't decided in an eight-minute overtime, so the game went into a 17-minute second overtime period. Bullock scored her second goal of the game after splitting the defense in the period's opening minute.

Blake will play the Winner of East Grand Forks and St. Paul United.
