Orono Hockey Captains Lead the Way to Victory in Season Opener

Goals by Maddie Martini (2), Becky Smith and Haley Nielsen; 22 saves on 24 shots for goalie Casey Hartfiel.

The Orono girl's hockey team began the season in style Tuesday night by putting a tally in the win column with a victory over visiting New Prague, 4-2.  

Orono was led by their three captains, senior Casey Hartfiel and juniors Maddie Martini and Becky Smith.  

Martini scored two goals in the contest—including one short-handed which iced the game late in the third period. Smith put the team ahead for good early in the third on a blast from the left circle making the score 3-2.  Harfiel came up big for the Spartans stopping  22 shots on the night including several key saves during a frantic third period.  

Orono travels to the North Shore this weekend to play Duluth (Friday) and Silver Bay (Saturday).
