WEST LEBANON — Lily Hoegler popped home a pair of rebounds from close range, each off Greta Barber shots from high in the zone, as the Lebanon-Stevens-Kearsarge girls hockey team played its eighth game in 18 days, defeating Bedford, 2-0, at Campion Rink on Friday night.

The Raiders (8-6-0) struggled with puck movement during the first period before opening the scoring on a Hoegler power play goal with 58 seconds remaining in the second stanza.

“We really haven’t had a lot of practice time lately,” said Raiders coach Mike Sheehan. “Things could have gone either way early. We were standing still and holding on to the puck a little too much, so that was the focus after the first period. That’s something that comes with experience and figuring out the game.”

Sheehan said Hoegler, a sophomore who’s only been playing hockey for several years, has scored her four goals this season “maybe a combined 20 feet from the goal. She’s got that nose for the net.”

The Bulldogs fell to 7-10-0 with the loss.

Paige Hoegler made eight saves for Lebanon, which held a 25-13 shot advantage and hosts first-place Oyster River-Portsmouth (14-2-0) on Saturday.
