Grosse Pointe South’s girls’ hockey team didn’t play a game in three weeks and it showed when it hosted Northville last week.

The Blue Devils found a way to win 4-1, staying unbeaten at 8-0 overall and in the Michigan Metro Girls High School Hockey League.

“We didn’t look very sharp tonight, but that is what happens when the girls don’t skate much during the break,” head coach Joe Provenzano said. “The girls have to get back into the swing of things in a hurry because we have some big games ahead of us.”

Senior goalie Anastasia Diamond was the No. 1 star of the game. She made several outstanding saves to lead the Blue Devils to the win. Northville had an abundance of shots on net, including a couple of breakaways Diamond stopped.

Offensively, junior Samantha Taylor blistered a slap shot by Mustangs goalie Eleni Lionas at the 9:36 mark of the first period. Sophomore Abby Carrier had the assist.

In the second period, senior Darian Dempsey scored with senior Meghan Polack netting the lone assist, but the Mustangs came right back and tallied five minutes later to tighten things up.

Junior Tenley Shield scored an insurance goal at the 11:36 mark of the third period with Dempsey and sophomore Libby Erickson assisting.

Shield added an empty net goal with 17.4 seconds left. Sophomore Eliza Bourke and Erickson had assists.
