BULLDOGS SUFFER 1-0 SETBACK TO MINNESOTA STATE
Saturday, October 20, 2012
The University of Minnesota Duluth women’s hockey team was looking for a bit of redemption Saturday afternoon against Minnesota State University, Mankato. Unfortunately, for the Bulldogs, the Mavericks had other ideas.
UMD surrendered a goal midway through the third period, allowing MSU to escape with something the Mavericks haven’t gotten away with since Nov. 22, 2009 – a win. The setback snaps the Bulldogs 14-game unbeaten streak against MSU and drops UMD’s overall and Western Collegiate Hockey Association record to 2-3-1.
The Bulldogs outshot the Mavericks 28-18, but a turnover in the UMD defensive zone led to MSU’s Tracy McCann beating Kayla Black for the game-winner at 11:34 of the third period. Black finished the game with 17 saves, while Maverick goaltender Danielle Butters shutout the Bulldogs with 28 stops. It was the first shutout against UMD on the road since last season when Bemidji State blanked the Bulldogs 1-0 on Feb. 10.
UMD, will continue its road stand next weekend In Boston, where the Bulldogs will face Boston College next Thursday and Friday. Both games are slated to start at 6:00 pm central time.
