If the last two weekends have said anything about the Minnesota women's hockey team, it's that they don't like being behind. After falling down a goal to Bemidji State only 55 seconds into Friday afternoon's game, the Gophers scored five unanswered goals for a commanding 5-1 victory and followed that with a 4-1 thumping of the Beavers on Saturday. up next Ohio State what: Women's hockey
The Minnesota women's hockey team knows that wins never come easily in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, but that hasn't stopped them recently. The Gophers have a chance to extend their winning streak of conference games to 13 this weekend, as they head to Bemidji State for their final road series of the regular season. The games are slated for 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the John Glas Fieldhouse.
Saturday is supposed to be relaxing, but don't tell that to the Minnesota women's hockey team. After a comfortable 3-1 win over Minnesota State on Friday night, the Gophers had to overcome an early two goal deficit and hold off a desperate final effort from the Mavericks on Saturday to notch a 4-3 victory and earn the sweep. up next bemidji state what: Women's hockey when: 2 p.m., Friday
Right now, it would be difficult to find a team in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association that is looking forward to playing at Ridder Arena. The No. 4 ranked Minnesota women's hockey team currently boasts a pristine 9-0-2 record at home and hopes to maintain it when Minnesota State comes to town this weekend. Friday and Saturday's games are both scheduled for 7 p.m.
For once, 13 might not be such an unlucky number. With a pair of wins over the University of North Dakota this weekend, the Minnesota women's hockey team extended its unbeaten streak to 13 and has now won seven straight against Western Collegiate Hockey Association opponents. The Gophers (17-4-3 Overall, 13-4-1 WCHA) followed a 4-1 victory Friday night with a 2-1 win Saturday with 10 different players contributing points in the sweep. On Friday, four different players found the back of the net as nine players scored at least one point.
