The Austin girls hockey team fell to Faribault 5-2 in Riverside Arena Tuesday.

The Packers (4-7 overall, 1-6 Big Nine) caught the Falcons at a bad time as their senior center Megan Bergland, who will play Division I hockey at Vermont next season, was in her second game back after missing the first part of the season.

Bergland scored a goal to tie the game in the first and she had an assist to make it 2-1 Falcons.

“Bergland was on fire and they’re a good team,” Austin head coach Denny Bray said. “I thought we played a great first period, but I don’t know what happened in the second period.”

Austin attempted 27 shots and Allison Hoban made 37 saves for the Packers.
