The Buffalo News - - SPORTS -

Amanda Kes­sel scored the only goal in the shootout to lead Team Sz­aba­dos, cap­tained by Buf­falo Beauts goalie Shan­non Sz­aba­dos, over Team Steck­lein in the Na­tional Women’s Hockey League All-Star game Sun­day at Bridge­stone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.

The game, two 25-minute halves of 4-on-4 hockey, was played be­fore a crowd of 6,120 im­me­di­ately af­ter the NHL game be­tween the St. Louis Blues and Nashville Preda­tors. Team Sz­aba­dos had first-half goals by Au­dra Richards (Metropoli­tan Rivet­ers) and Ka­te­rina Mra­zova (Con­necti­cut Whale). Team Steck­lein, led by Min­nesota de­fender Lee Steck­lein, tied it on sec­ond-half goals by Lisa Ches­son (Buf­falo) and Emily Fluke (Con­necti­cut).

Satur­day, a sell­out crowd at Ford Ice Cen­ter saw Team Sz­aba­dos win the Skills Com­pe­ti­tion, 4-3, over Team Steck­lein. Ni­cole Hens­ley of the Beauts won the Fastest Goalie com­pe­ti­tion. Dani Cam­er­anesi of the Beauts won the Ac­cu­racy Shoot­ing con­test.

“It was elec­tric out there,” said Cam­er­anesi. “It was so cool see­ing it sold out and see­ing all the fans and get­ting a lit­tle in­ter­ac­tion to vote on who had the best shootout moves.”
