ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. -- Rhys Wallin recorded a hat trick and Wayzata got all four of its goals from its top line as the second-ranked Trojans handed fourth-ranked Benilde-St. Margaret's a 4-1 defeat.
With Wayzata holding a 2-0 lead on a pair of goals by Wallin, the Red Knights cut the lead in half when Mason Stenger walked the puck from the left side along the blue line and his shot from outside the top of the slot found its way through traffic and into the back of the net.
BSM was unable to capitalize on any of its five power-play chances, despite recording nine shots on goal in seven minutes, 31 seconds of power-play time.
The Red Knights held a 30-27 edge in shots on goal and won 38 of 66 faceoffs.
Next up for BSM is another home game, Thursday, as the Red Knights take on 13th-ranked Cretin-Derham Hall at 7 p.m.
Caleb Koskie collected his second assist of the season on BSM's lone goal.
