The UND's women's hockey program will soon see three talented players from the Warroad girls hockey team.
All three recruits were on display Friday as the trio each scored points in beating East Grand Forks Senior High 6-0 at the Civic Center.
"These are very talented kids," Warroad coach David Marvin said. "Their families will do anything for the girls. They have taken advantage of the unlimited ice time."
Warroad junior Kayla Gardner scored five points on the night, dominating the Green Wave defense in the second period with three consecutive goals.
Gardner finished with three goals and two assists.
Gardner, who leads the team with 21 points, has scored 16 points in the last three Senior High-Warroad matchups.
Coach Marvin had nothing but praise for Gardner.
"She's the most talented girl I've coached," Marvin said. "She's a junior, so we still have time. I believe she's a U-18 caliber player and she showed that tonight."
Warroad junior Lisa Marvin and sophomore Lynn Astrup have also committed to UND.
"They have talent, hard work and good genetics," Marvin said. "(Lisa Marvin) has a good feel for the game. She's tough enough and strong enough."
Lisa Marvin tallied three assists against Senior High.
Senior High, 4-5, hopes to bounce back after the shutout.
"(Warroad) is a team that will always put pressure on you," Senior High coach Jim Scanlan said. "They don't give you a lot of space in the offensive zone and don't give you many opportunities."
The Green Wave will face Lake of the Woods tonight.
"It's a good thing," Scanlan said. "We get to get up and play the game again. We'll have to work on the defensive zone. It's one of those things that come along as the season goes along."
