The Black River Falls/Tomah co-op girls hockey team was looking for stiff competition over the Thanksgiving weekend, and they found it in Baldwin.

The Tigers dropped three games in two days, losing 6-2 and 5-0 decisions to Western Wisconsin and St. Croix Valley Nov. 23 and losing a 4-0 rematch to Western Wisconsin Nov. 24.

Black River Falls/Tomah returned home with a 1-3-0 record.

In the first game against Western Wisconsin (based in Somerset), the Tigers hung close for most of the game and were tied 2-2 heading into the third period before the Stars erupted with four goals. Ellie Steinhoff scored both Tigers’ goals, the second of which gave them a 2-1 lead 45 seconds into the second period.

The offense struggled after that and didn’t score for the final seven periods of the tournament.

Black River Falls/Tomah goaltender Josie Mathison made 116 saves during the three games.

The Tigers host Eau Claire North at Lunda Ice Center Tuesday, Dec. 4 in a 7 p.m. faceoff.
