(Northland's NewsCenter) --- The #20-ranked Grand Rapids-Greenway girl's hockey team advanced to the Section 7AA championship game on Saturday with a 4-3 win over Cloquet-Esko-Carlton in double overtime.

Molly Illikainen scored the game-winning goal just over two minutes into the second overtime period, her second tally of the contest.
