#1 Edina girls hockey cruise to section final in search of fourth straight state title

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.

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