St. Paul, Minn. - Sophie McGovern and MiKayla Kero scored for Proctor-Hermantown, but the Mirage fell to St. Paul United 5-2 in the State A Quarterfinals of the Minnesota Girl's Hockey Tournament.

St Paul United (17-8-2) freshman Lauren Boettcher netted the first goal of the game. The score stood at 1-0 into the second period before sophomore forward Lea Groebe gave her team a two-goal lead.

The Mirage of Proctor/Hermantown grabbed hold of the momentum after it took advantage of a United slashing penalty. Sophomore Sophie McGovern scored a powerplay goal with an assist from Jillayn Gilbert. A late St. Paul goal by Phelps gave her team another two-goal advantage.

Mikayla Kero brought the Mirage back within one score with an unassisted goal. St. Paul junior defender Kate Hallet scored the deciding goal late in the third period, taking a slapshot from near the blue line that trickled by Mirage goalie Kylie Hommerding. An empty-net goal by Phelps soon followed to give United a 5-2 edge.

With the victory, St. Paul United advances to play East Grand Forks in the Class A semifinal on Friday at Xcel Energy Center. Section 7A champion Proctor/Hermantown (18-10) will face Litchfield/Dassel-Cokato Thursday in the consolation round at Ridder Arena.
