It took seven years and a few minutes of overtime, but the East Grand Forks Senior High girls hockey team has beaten Crookston for the first time in program history.

Keeley Gregoire scored two goals, including the game-winner in overtime, to lift the Green Wave to a 2-1 victory over Crookston on Tuesday in the East Grand Forks Civic Center.

“We hadn’t beaten Crookston before, so we really wanted this,” Gregoire said. “In over-time, I think we wanted it more.”

The Green Wave’s first season of girls hockey was the 2002-03 season.

“This kind of shows parity in girls hockey now,” Crookston coach Jim Persson said. “It was Warroad, Roseau and Crookston for a long time. This could be a statement game for East Grand Forks. We hope it’s not. We hope we can regroup and get them back in Crookston.”
