Updated: February 13, 2020 11:38 AM

The #1 Edina Hornets defeated the Benilde-St. Margaret's Red Knights 6-1 Wednesday night at Parade Ice Garden to advance to the section 6AA Final.



Edina jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead less than three minutes into the game on a goal from junior forward Hannah Chorske. Then, sophomore Vivian Jungels took over scoring three straight goals to end the first period - a natural hat trick - that made it a 4-0 Edina lead.

After a scoreless second period, sophomore defenseman Sami Hankinson scored for Edina in the third to make it 5-0.

Just for good measure, Jungels later scored her fourth goal of the game.

Edina advances to take on Wayzata Friday night at Parade Ice Garden.

Following a loss in their season opener, Edina has now won 25 straight games. Throughout the entire season, including that lone defeat, Edina has given up more than one goal in a game only one time.

The Hornets are trying to win their fourth straight state title.
