Detert sets team goal record, Edge cruises to win over MedfordSubmitted: 02/08/2014

ANTIGO - Katie Detert set the program record for single-season goals fewer than two
minutes into the game, and she finished with a hat trick to lead Northern Edge
to a 7-3 victory over Medford Saturday night at the Langlade County
Multi-Purpose Building.

Detert's three goals put her at 34 for the season, surpassing Nikki Kloes'
Northern Edge record set in 2009.

"It just shows how much hard work she puts in, and how much she does in the
offseason," Edge co-coach Jon Forster said after the game.

Two other players had two goals apiece for the Edge, as Lauren Smith made
improved her goal total to 22 on the season and Grace Hogar got her first two goals.

The Edge fired 40 shots on Medford goalie Makayla Hanson, while Shea Petersen
saved 18 of Medford's 21 shots.

"She played okay. She's pretty sick. She was having a tough time before the
game, and that's why those two floaters went in," Forster said of Petersen.

The win keeps Northern Edge in position to seek a Great Northern Conference
championship, with games against league frontrunners Northland Pines and Stevens
Point-Wisconsin Rapids coming up next week.

On Saturday, the Edge faced Medford for the second time in a week. Coming off a
11-1 win against the Raiders on Tuesday, they netted four goals in the first
period and added a fifth before Medford got on the board.

"It was nice to get out there and get a quick lead," Forster said.

Lizzy Lemke scored in the second period and Sienna Demulling had goals just 16
seconds apart in the third period to account for the Raiders' scoring.

Medford went 1-3 on power plays, while the Edge scored on just one of five.

"I thought our penalty kill was great. I thought our power play needs to be a
little more crisp," Forster said.

Northern Edge will face conference leader Northland Pines in Eagle River on
Monday evening. A win for the Edge would slide them into a tie in the loss
column with the Eagles.

"We're looking forward to that game, because we didn't have one of our better
skaters, Taylor Trachte was out the first time. We're looking to go up there,
and get ahead quick," Forster said.

The Edge will return to the Langlade County Multi-Purpose Building to close the
regular season against third-place Point-Rapids on Thursday.
