They didn't give up a goal.

The Dodge County girls hockey team dominated St. Peter in Kasson Jan. 11 and St. Paul Blades in St. Paul Jan. 15 from start to finish, winning 14-0, 6-0 respectively.

The Wildcats are now 15-3-1 overall for the season.

"I thought that was really impressive," said head coach Jeremy Gunderson, on the pair of victories.

More impressive than the team's offense, perhaps was its defense.

Dodge County outscored St. Peter by a 70-6 margin and St. Paul 40-2.

In the first game, Dana Rasmussen led the Wildcats in scoring with a hat trick, netting three goals while adding two assists. Emily Gunderson scored two goals and three assists, while Byron's Darby Dodds also scored two goals and three assists.

Nine different Dodge County players scored against St. Peter.

"We played everyone on our roster," said Gunderson, who noted that the Wildcats program has come a long way in the past decade.

What started out as a varsity-only program has been built into a solid, productive feeder system for years to come.

In addition to its varsity team, Dodge County now also has a junior varsity squad, two under 10 teams and one team under 12.

"Ten years ago, St. Peter was beating us 10-0," Gunderson said.

Against St. Paul, Dodds scored a team-high two goals.

On Jan. 17, the 20th ranked-Wildcats faced off at Blake, the No. 2-ranked team in the state.

Results were unavailable by press time.
