East/Loyola has high hopes for rematch



Mound-Westonka  defeated East/Loyola 4-1 in their only regular-season meeting. Fuller, however, said that game was a lot closer than it appeared.

“We played well; we outshot them 38-28 and one of our better defenders (Kelsey Ekstedt) was out with a shoulder injury but she’s back now.”

Speaking of injuries, East/Loyola’s Savannah Quandt broke her wrist at the end of the regular season but has been able to play in the team’s two postseason games with a fitted cast.

“Savannah has been a little more limited in what she’s able to do,” Fuller said. “She can’t do everything she usually does with the puck but she’s finding new ways to create scoring opportunities.

“The good thing is that other girls have stepped up. Katy Snyder and Tatum Schultz have both improved their games in the playoffs.”

Snyder, in fact, is the team’s leading scorer in the postseason with three goals and four assists. Ali Schreiber has also played well with five assists in two postseason games.

“The key for us is that we’re playing well as a team right now,” Fuller said. “We’re looking forward to showing what we can do (in tonight’s game).”
