EAU CLAIRE - No. 4-ranked UW-Superior scored three of its four goals in the third period on its way to defeating the UW-Eau Claire women's hockey team 4-0 tonight at the Hobbs Ice Center.
The Blugolds fall to an overall record of 3-6-1 and a Northern Collegiate Hockey Association (NCHA) record of 1-4-1. The Yellowjackets are now 11-2-0 overall and 5-1-0 in the NCHA.
For the second consecutive night both teams got off four shots on goal in the first period, but the game remained scoreless going into the second period. The Yellowjackets got on the scoreboard 1:33 into the second period when Jamie McClintock scored an even-handed goal to make the score 1-0. That is what the score would be at the second intermission. Eau Claire out-shot Superior in the second period 10-7.
With 11:10 to go in the game, Brianne Mosher scored another even-handed goal to extend the Superior lead to 2-0. A little over three minutes later McClintock scored her second goal of the game, this time a short-handed goal, to give the Yellowjackets a 3-0 lead. Superior got one more goal with 3:12 remaining in the game when Vi Theofylatos scored an even-handed goal as Superior went on to win 4-0.
The Yellowjackets ended up out-shooting the Blugolds 22-20 in the contest. Eau Claire goaltender Bri Lutz (Fr.-Burnsville, MN) finished with 18 saves in the game, while Superior's Melissa Kunzelman finished with 20 saves.
Both teams went a combined 0-for-8 on the power play as the Yellowjackets had five penalties and the Blugolds had three.
