Red Knights recover from two-goal deficit but fall 4-2.

ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. -- Benilde-St. Margaret's overcame a two-goal deficit but late goals in the second and third periods by Eden Prairie's to escape with a 4-2 junior varsity win.

The Eagles took the 2-0 lead on a goal in the first period and another just one minute, 45 seconds into the second period.

At the time, the visitors held a 10-2 advantage in shots on goal but the power play would turn that around for the hosts.

Eden Prairie took four consecutive penalties in the second period and the Red Knights converted on the second of the chances when Caelan Woog scored his ninth goal of the season at 6:26.

When the Eagles were whistled for too many players on the ice with 3:34 to play in the second period, it took BSM 36 seconds to finally tie the score when Jake Leonard's shot from the top of the slot found its way through traffic and into the back of the net.

However, Eden Prairie got back on track when Sam Wilhite broke into the Red Knight zone and, with a BSM player hooking him, he managed to get the puck past Jack Sawyer for the eventual game-winning goal.

The final period saw Eden Prairie dominating the final 15 minutes but it took a 5-on-3 power-play chance with 2:35 to play when Colin Farris scored to give the Eagles an insurance goal.

Sawyer finished the game with 26 saves as Eden Prairie held a 30-17 advantage in shot on goal. Nine of BSM's 17 shots came on its four second-period power-play opportunities.

The Red Knights return to action, Tuesday, to begin the final week of the season with a 5 p.m. game versus St. Thomas at St. Thomas Arena in Mendota Heights.

Caelan Woog's ninth goal of the season got BSM on the scoreboard in the second period.
