By Staff, 03/30/21, 8:45PM CDT


Wildcats advance to semifinals with 7-3 win

Brody Lamb, the state’s leading scorer, put on a scoring display Tuesday evening in the Class A quarterfinals at the Xcel Energy Center. Lamb, a junior forward, scored six goals to lead Dodge County to a 7-3 win over No. 1 seed Hermantown.

All but three of No. 1 seed Hermantown’s varsity members were quarantined for COVID-19 exposure and missed Tuesday’s quarterfinal.

Lamb’s six goals pushes his total to 48 goals and 82 points. He has scored two or more goals in 13-straight games and now has six games with three or more goals.

Lamb scored his first goal on a rebound then used a backhand shot 33 seconds later for his second goals midway through the first period. Dodge County eventually led 4-0 after his second-period goal. Hermantown got on the scoreboard with a power-play goal by Cameron Pietrusa.

Lamb opened the scoring in the third period before the Hawks answered with two goals to make it 5-3 when Zam Plante scored with 3:01 remaining. Lamb scored an empty-net goal with 1:29 remaining before netting his sixth goal with 60 seconds left.

Plante, a sophomore foroward, led the Hermantown with a goal and two assists. Pietrusa recorded an assist to go with this second-period goal and Alex King added two assists for Hermantown, 19-2.

Matt Donovan was credited with four assists for Dodge County, now 18-3-1.
