ST. PAUL — It took a little while for the Austin boys hockey team to warm up, but once they did they handled St. Paul Highland Park (0-7 overall) 9-1 on the road Tuesday.

The Packers (2-2 overall) trailed 1-0 after the first period, but they bounced back to score three in the second and six in the third.

“We had a lot of scoring chances early on, but we missed the net a lot and we just couldn’t bury the puck,” Austin head coach Erik LaRock said. “In the third period we moved the puck around a lot more and we were moving our feet.”
