Magnuson Records Shut Out In Wisconsin Selects National Title Win

Monday, April 8th, 2024 -- 9:43 AM


The Wisconsin Selects (WI) and East Coast Wizards (MA) faced off in the 2A title game of the 2024 Chipotle-USA Hockey Girls Tier II 19U National Championships at Munn Ice Arena in East Lansing, Michigan on Sunday morning.   A shutout performance from goalie Sydney Magnuson of Neillsville, secured a 3-0 win and a national title for the Selects.   

Right from puck drop, both teams had some good looks on net, but the defensive efforts in the first frame kept the championship game in a 0-0 deadlock early. The defenses on both sides of the ice did a great job of intercepting passes and picking the pockets of their opponents.

Forward Kayla Dogs notched the first goal of the morning for the Selects after her shot trickled past Wizard’s goaltender Lily Prendergast off an assist from forward Adelyn Milota.  

With 5:52 left in the second period, the Wisconsin Selects got another one past Lily Prendergast.  Addisyn Buesgen’s shot from just outside the crease off an assist from Reese Duncan ricocheted off of Prendergast before finding its home in the back of the net to put the Selects up 2-0.

Milota sealed the 3-0 win for the Selects with an empty-net goal. 

“I just knew I had to keep my team in it,” Magnuson said. “I knew it was going to be a really close game. So any goal was important, and I just knew I had to keep the right mindset and keep our defense. And, if we had like a bad play or something, keep the positivity going on the ice and just keep our team in.”

Magnuson, a Wisconsin First Team All-State goalie from Black River Falls Co-op was joined on the Wisconsin Selects team by Tigers teammate Zowie Hunter.
