Final Home Game Results In Tie For Women's Hockey
Posted: Saturday, February 11, 2006
EAU CLAIRE - The UW-Eau Claire women's hockey team picked up its fifth tie of the season with a 1-1 final against UW-Stevens Point tonight for the last game at Hobbs Ice Center this season.
Eau Claire moves to 0-8-5 in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association (NCHA) and 6-12-5 on the year. Besides it being the fifth NCHA and overall tie, it is also the eighth overtime game for the Blugolds so far. The five ties are the most the Blugolds have had, with next closest being three from 2002-03. The Pointers are ranked sixth in the USCHO.com Division III poll Now Stevens Point is 7-1-3 in NCHA contests and 13-4-4 overall.
Eau Claire got off to the early lead with a Laura Brackey (Sr.-Oakdale, MN/Tartan) even-strength goal with just under two minutes remaining in the first. Points leader Lauren Havard (Fr.-San Angelo, TX/Arapahoe) and Karen Hebert (Jr.-Lakeville, MN/Holy Angels) tallied the assists.
Just like last night, the third period did the Blugolds in against Stevens Point, though this time the end result was only a tie. At 6:03, the Pointer points leader, Nicole Grossman, found the back of the net on a power-play to make it 1-1. After the five minute overtime, in which Eau Claire had three shots on goal and Stevens Point two, the game concluded.
The Blugolds managed 14 shots, including just one in the second period, while the Pointers took 37 in the game. Jill Arendt (So.-Plymouth, MN/Wayzata) defended the net well, snuffing out 36 shots.
The power-play situation went one out of four for the opponents and zero for two for the home team.
Stevens Point took the season series with two wins and a tie. The school also owns the all-time record, now standing at 1-18-1 in Steven Point's favor.
While it may have been the last home game, the Blugolds still have more hockey to play. The team will finish up the season at Hancock, MI against Finlandia Friday and Saturday. Games are at 7:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m., respectively.
