Northfield blanks Austin girls hockey team

The Austin girls hockey team was shutout for the second time during its six-game losing streak as it fell 5-0 at Northfield (8-10-1 overall) Monday.

The Packers (7-13 overall) were off the mark on all 25 of their shots and Northfield, which scored two shorthanded goals, took a 4-0 lead into the third period.
