Women's Hockey Falls By A Score Of 3 To 1
Posted: Friday, November 9, 2007
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. - The UW- Eau Claire women's hockey team was defeated by St. Thomas University (Minn.) at Hobbs Ice Arena on Friday night by a score of 3-1.
The Blugolds fell behind early when St. Thomas scored at 8:58 of the first period. Jill Kobow scored the goal which gave St. Thomas the early 1-0 lead, and Ashley Reinhardt assisted her.
The Blugolds did not fare much better in the second period as the Tommies took at 2-0 lead when Reinhardt and Kobow teamed up again at 14:01. This time Reinhardt found Kobow, and Reinhardt was able to put the puck past Danika Porter (Rosemount, MN/South St. Paul).
The score remained 2-0 until 19:18 of the third period. At that time, the Blugolds attempted to make a late charge when Meghan Lorenz (Fr.-Minnetonka, MN/Wayzata) scored an even strength goal to draw the Blugolds within one. The Lorenz goal was assisted by Shannon Nelson (Fr.-Blaine, MN). However, it was all for not when the Tommies lit the lamp with 42 second remaining in the game after the Blugolds pulled Porter with 45 seconds to go.
Neither of the teams had any success on the power play, the Tommies and the Blugolds both went 0-5 with the skater advantage.
In net for the Blugolds, Porter stopped 20 of the 22 shots the Tommies threw at her. On the other side of the ice, Lauren Bradel came up with a phenomenal performance stopping 36 Blugold shots while only allowing one goal.
The UW-Eau Claire Women's Hockey team will hope to even its record up at 2-2 tomorrow when it hosts St. Mary's University (Minn.). The Puck is set to drop at 7 p.m. at Hobbs Ice Arena. The Blugolds are 4-6 all-time against the Cardinals.
