MOORHEAD - The Brainerd Warriors showed Section 8-2A that they are a team to be reckoned with by shutting out their nemesis the Moorhead Spuds 3-0 in a key section game Tuesday.

The Warriors have won 11 straight since a season-opening 4-0 loss to section foe Rogers. Moorhead entered the game 7-4 on a six-game winning streak.

Ally Smith drew first blood with an unassisted goal at the 13:21 mark of the first half.

Angela Lacy, with an assist from Hannah Johnson, made it 2-0 before the intermission and then Lacy added some insurance with an unassisted goal 8:25 into the second half.

Brainerd outshot the Spuds 14-9 and goalkeeper Megan Tschida recorded the clean sheet.

"This was a fun atmosphere tonight," said Warrior head coach Grant Gmeinder. "It was one of the games the girls talked about before the season started.

"They played really calm and controlled their nerves even though they were excited to be playing Moorhead. The combination of beating Elk River, Bemidji and Moorhead in eight days gives them some real confidence.

"Angela Lacy had a good game. She scored the second goal with her head and then kind of iced the game with the third in the second half. She also frustrated and shut down Moorhead's best player (Allison Ulness) and essentially took her out of the game.

"Grace Sundberg and Chloe Smith played well together and did a great job defending the center of the field."
