Girls hockey: Achiever Academy downs Polars

Achiever Academy, a small school in Vadnais Heights devoted to hockey, made a trip to Polar Arena Nov. 14, and the Aces gave a skating lesson to the North High Polars.
Except for North goalie Marit Larson, who was just short of perfect, in goal, the Polars found getting into the Aces’ zone a difficult chore.
Larson turned aside 42 of the 44 missiles ticketed for the 24 square feet behind her. She held the opposition scoreless until the third period. Through the first 34 minutes of action, Larson had stopped 27 shots on goal.
