MITCHELL — After a scoreless first period, the Mitchell Marlins girls offense came to life Saturday.

The Marlins scored five goals in the final two frames, taking down Oahe 5-0 for their fourth-straight win.

Brynlee Sabers started the scoring for Mitchell with a shorthanded goal in the second period before Reese Amick and Makenna Tronnes tacked on second-period goals. Sabers netted two more goals in the third, extending the lead and picking up a hat trick. She finished the game with four total points, while Amick and Tronnes each had two and Tristen Zimmer had one on an assist she picked up on Tronnes’ goal.

In net, Sadie Kludt picked up her first full-game shutout of the season, turning away all 22 shots she faced, and it was the second time in the last three games she didn’t allow a goal.

Mitchell was 5-for-5 on the penalty kill, and scored once on its five power-play opportunities.


The Marlins improved to 7-4 with the win and will take on Aberdeen on Sunday, Jan. 22, looking for their fifth win in a row.
