Despite outshooting Moose Lake Area, North Shore had trouble finding the back of the net in a 4-1 loss Tuesday, Nov. 13 in Silver Bay.

The Storm fell behind 4-0 after Moose Lake’s Sandra Ribich scored twice, with Gracie Hartl and Jamie Benzie each adding one.

Goalie Harper Powell made 20 saves for the Storm and Sydney Haugan picked up a late goal to break up the shutout.

Experience could be a problem for North Shore this season, after losing its top three scorers from last season and its two starting goalies.

North Shore lost 5-4 to Princeton in its home opener Friday, Nov. 8.

The Storm (0-2) are next scheduled to play Eveleth-Gilbert at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, in Silver Bay.
